romance saturday: we heart the longest married couple

Leave a comment

we love hearing romantic stories about long-lasting unions and everlasting love. it was so inspiring to see Ann and John Betar, who just celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary. the Connecticut couple were married on November 25, 1932. the two met when Ann was in high school and the two lived in Bridgeport, Connecticut. though she was arranged to be married to a different man, Ann and John eloped to New York together after realizing that they had found true love. “It is unconditional love and understanding” says Ann of their long-lasting marriage. so simple and beautiful!

Ann and John fall short of the Guinness World Record for longest marriage, of Zelmyra and Herbert Fisher, who had been married almost 87 years when Herbert died in 2011.
