 Couple in US Has Been Happily Married for 81 Years

Recently, the media reported on a US couple, who celebrated their 81st marriage anniversary, making them the longest married pair in the country.

While revealing the secret behind their long term marriage, Ann Betar, who was 17-year-old when she married John Betar, said that if things feel wrong than they either straighten it out or just try to go along with it, Fox News reported.

Ann, now 97, asserted that 81-year long marriage hasn't been a lovey-dovey thing, but they have learnt to accept each other's way of life, agreements and disagreements.

The couple, who had eloped to evade Ann's father's plans to have her marry a man 20 years her senior, has 5 children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
