John and Ann Betar’s relationship was based on something that lasts forever: true love, pure love. They were best friends, living near each other as they grew up. Now they are known as America’s longest married couple.
They watched the world change together.
And John’s one piece of advice? “Always agree with your wife.”
Ann’s father planned for her to marry a man 20 years older than her, but John wouldn’t have it.
Their families didn’t think their marriage would last, which makes it even funnier that they were named by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter as 2013′s “longest married couple.”
They drove off together in his Ford Roadster, infuriating their families and causing quite the commotion.
