Mel Schwanke, 86, and Joey Schwanke, 81, of Fremont, Neb., have been married for 64 blissful years, and they say that part of the secret to the happy longevity of their marriage is in their 146 custom-made matching outfits.

KOMO News first reported on the happy couple and the story has since gone viral. The couple calls all the attention “fun and overwhelming.”

I see a lot of couples who have been married that long, who dress alike, but not on purpose. One woman told me, she got dressed, was making breakfast, her husband came in, they were both wearing jeans, and a white shirt...she said they looked like twins...but they did not match their clothes...just happens that way alot.

I love couples who have been married forever...one guy, calls his wife, his "bride"...says he "stole" her from the cradle, she is 4 years younger than him. They are cute as buttons...age 90 and 94...and still in love.

Too cute -- but a lot of couples remain together and don't dress up alike.
