Think you’ve been married a long time? Feel like you’ve been married since the 12th of Never? Well, I’m betting that you don’t have a clue what a long time really is because I’m betting that none of you come close to having an anniversary that extends back to the year 1932!
I wish Texas could claim them, but John and Ann Betar live in Fairfield, Connecticut, and they tied a knot that has held tightly through the years, over eight decades, or to be exact, the couple married on November 25, 1932, and it is believed that they have been married longer than any other couple in the country.
Oh, in case you are wondering, John is 101, his bride is 97. Here at United we send out a tremendous congratulations to this couple who managed to make it work longer than most ever imagine, Texans or not. They have set an example for all of us!
