'The key is to always agree with your wife': America's longest married couple prepare for 81st wedding anniversary

As America's longest married couple prepare to celebrate their 81st wedding anniversary, 102-year-old husband John Betar has revealed the secret behind their incredible relationship  - 'always agree with your wife!'

John and Ann Betar eloped on November 25, 1932, fleeing their close-knit Syrian neighborhood in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

They got into John's Ford Roadster and drove as fast as they could to Harrison, New York, to avoid Ann's father's plans to marry her off to a man 20 years older.

Now, as they prepare to celebrate their anniversary on Monday, the couple, named on Valentine's Day by Worldwide Marriage Encounter as 2013's 'longest married couple' in America, can only laugh as they look back on the commotion they caused. Facebook Fark Furl
