"You know what the best time of life is? It's when your children are married and give you grandchildren. The highlight of our lives is a great-granddaughter," says Evie.
"The best time of my life is right now. Imagine being retired 28 years!" says John.
After proposing with a $29 diamond ring, the couple is still happy to be together today!
But what are their secrets? We could learn a thing or two from them.
2. Never go to bed mad.
“If it’s really a focal point we’ll sit alongside each other and talk it out,” said John. “But then it’s always a kiss goodnight.”
3. Be good friends.
“The important thing in a marriage is to be nice to each other,” said Evie.
4. Appreciate what you have right now.
“The best time was yesterday because I made it until today, and with my honey-baby by my side,” said John.
5. Make each other laugh.
“I said, ‘You know what, John, I never was attracted to another man,'” Evie said. “And he said, ‘You know what, I never was attracted to another man either.'”
6. And of course, always have fun!
Here's John and Evie singing Sir Mix-a-Lot's Baby Got Back like absolute pros.
