United States Longest Married Couple Reaches 80years

John and Ann Batar are United States longest married couple.  Ann now 97 and John 101 are still living in their home along the Fairfield shore. They grew up across the street from each other and John used to drive Ann to high school, and then they fell in love. 

Ann's father had arranged for her to marry another man, but fortunately they eloped in New York. They are still together and so happy with each other.
They have five children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. "They live with contentment and don't live beyond their means" says John

Ann also stated that "We were fortunate enough to live long enough to see this ... and it's really one of the most gratifying things in the world to see your great-grandchildren, to see your grandchildren become adults."

Am so happy for this old couples....
