FAIRFIELD, CT ( AP) -
John and Ann Betar of Connecticut have been married so long they're getting national recognition.
John is 101 years old and Ann is 97. The two grew up as neighbors in
Bridgeport and got married on Nov. 25, 1932. They have five children, 14
grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
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.
