“LONGEST MARRIED COUPLE” IN THE U.S.!

longest married couple

John and Ann Betar, of Fairfield, Conn., celebrate their 80th anniversary at
St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church, in Bridgeport, Conn. on Sunday,
Nov. 25, 2012. The couple has been named the "longest married couple"
in the U.S. for 2013 by Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a Christian
marriage group based in San Bernardino, Calf.

 

Ann Betar told the Hearst Connecticut Media Group around their 80th anniversary
in November that family has been a key to their longevity.

"That’s what makes life what it is," she said. "We were fortunate enough to live long enough to see this … and it’s really one of the most gratifying things in the world to
see your great-grandchildren, to see your grandchildren become adults."

John Betar added, "That’s what keeps us alive. We live for them."
