America’s Longest-Married Couple

America’s ‘longest-married couple’ celebrates 81st wedding anniversary 

Monday marks the 81st wedding anniversary for John and Ann Betar. The pair eloped on Nov. 25, 1932, shortly after they met. John, 21, and Ann, 17, had to flee their homes in Bridgeport, Conn., for Harrison, N.Y., because Ann’s father wanted her to marry a different man 20 years her elder. Now he’s 102 and she’s 98.
