Getting married is one thing, but staying married is not so easy.
Cue John and Ann Betar.
The couple from Fairfield, Ct. can boast that they’re America’s longest married couple and they have some advice for you.
The pair eloped in New York more than 83 years ago, running away from Ann’s father who wanted her to marry a man 20 years her senior.
Now, the centenarians have a large family of 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
