Today, my great aunt & uncle (my grandfather’s sister & brother-in-law) are celebrating their 75TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! No, this isn’t a typo–they were married in 1935 at the tender ages of 15 & 16. Can you imagine 75 years?!! That’s so awesome!
There’s a HUGE shindig today & sadly I can’t make it but I thought we could celebrate in the blogosphere (I did make it to their 60, 65, & 70th parties!) Their oldest kiddo is 74 years old & their youngest is 60– they are in charge of the party plans. I guess having parents in their 90s keeps them young!
How exciting! I don't think I know anyone who has been married that long. I think my husband's grandparents have been married over 60 but I'm not sure! I bet they have lots of advice of marriage!
I can most definitely say that is a record for me! That's so amazing though! Enjoy the party!!

Wow! How cool to have a kid that is 74! Imagine! My hubby + I are about to celebrate our 21st! Can I really be that old?
Sometimes I feel like I've been married 75 years…only joking, hope my wife of 6 years doesn't read this or I'm in trouble!!
Seriously though, this is pretty amazing and congratulations to the happy couple.

These long marriages amaze me. Staying married is one thing, both living that long is just uncanny. My grandparents have been married 58 years. Amazing.
Wow, 75 years that is amazing! Staying married that long and having been married so young! I hope I am lucky enough to celebrate that many years with my husband! I hope you are having a great weekend!
