Most people hope to live to be 75-years old, but for this couple they have been married for that long.

John and Evie from Twin Cities Minnesota, have known each other for 85 years when Evie moved into his neighborhood in 1932.

After 3 kids together, countless grandchildren and a great-granddaughter these two have experienced everything in life together.

From growing up in the great depression, to John serving in World War 2,  this couple is loving their lives now that they're older.


They were in the same 6th grade class and Evie describes John as the "naughtiest boy in class".

They went on their first date when they were 15.

“He was a naughty boy. He used to throw spitballs at me,” says Evie. “But I didn’t know that was a way of showing attention.”


To commemorate their long-standing romance, John and Evie's granddaughter Danni made a video asking them to reveal their secrets to a happy marriage.
