Wow! My great grandparents came close. They were married 66 years before my great grandfather just recently passed away.

Right? LOL My grandmother and my husband's mom both got married when they were 16...to guys significantly older. But in their cases, I think they stayed married because they didn't have any other choices. No education, lot of kids etc. What's the point after 50 years?
