FAIRFIELD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — John and Ann Betar of Connecticut have been married so long they’re getting national recognition.
The Fairfield spouses, who tied the knot more than 80 years ago, have been named the 2013 “longest married couple” in the United States by Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a group in San Bernardino, Calif., dedicated to improving Christian marriages.
“I do nothing special,” John Betar said. “We’re lucky to be living this long.”
He is 101-years-old and Ann is 97.
