Reading the news this week, I saw this story about a Connecticut couple who’s been married for 81 years. Eighty-one!
Ann and John Betar’s love story is sweet – but their wedding story is fit for Hollywood! Escaping an arranged marriage, running off with the boy across the street, disapproving relatives. But somehow, they not only survived it all, but they succeeded!
With a family of loving children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, the Betars have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We all look to them and their longevity as a goal to achieve.
So, while you agonize over wedding details, keep your eye on the future. Maybe someday the two of you will be the next listed as the longest married couple!
