Relationship Advice From America's Longest-Married Couple
« on: November 25, 2013, 01:14:52 PM »
John and Ann Betar celebrate their 81st wedding anniversary today.

Quote
Work at your marriage
"Marriage isn't a lovey-dovey thing, y'know, for 80 years," Ann says. "You learn to accept one another's way of life."

"Devote your time to understanding one another," she adds. "Really, that's the whole thing."

"We always hold hands," John adds.

Appreciate your family
"Well, we just take things as they come, and we're contented, and we have lovely family to support us," John says. "Beautiful."

"Agreement, disagreements, preparation on brining up your kids," Ann adds. "That was the main interest, was your children."

Roll with it
"Be content with what you have and what you're doing," says John.

"We have watched the world change together," he continues. "The key is to always agree with your wife."
