Floricel Wants to Share a Couple of Smiles


This lady is just the happiest woman alive, or so it seems!
She’s really funny and this video gave me a good laugh.

They Just Broke The Marriage Record. But How They Started Is What Shocked Me.

November 22, 2013 Stories

John and Ann Betar’s relationship was based on something that lasts forever: true love. They were best friends, living near each other as they grew up. John was the boy across the street that stole Ann’s heart. Then, they eloped together in a whirlwind ceremony before Ann could be married to another man, causing fights among their families. Their dramatic marriage could have taken place in any classic romance, but it wasn’t just romantic fluff. It lasted so long and their love was so pure, they are now known as America’s longest married couple, about to celebrate their 81st anniversary.

Together, they raised five children and they have 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Their oldest daughter is 80 (as Ann is 98 and John is 102). In the past few years, they lost both a son and daughter to cancer, something a parent should never have to live through.

But their love keeps them strong.

  1. This little two year old is extremely talented. He is able to make it into the baskets and do trick shots. I can’t even imagine how great he will be in the near future.

  2. Funny video really made me smile.

  3. Christopher Rodriguez

    This boy is so talented. There is a bright future ahead of him.

  4. And John’s one piece of advice? “Always agree with your wife.” Haha!
    They’ve achieved what everyone wants. Such a sweet story.

  5. The first video is crazy how a 2 year old can shoot like that he was born with talent. I wouldn’t be surprised if basketball teams are already considering him on there team once he grows up of course.

  6. That made me laugh alot

  7. This definitely made me smile!

    Oh I want to just Squeeze them all lol

  8. Great love story! I think the reason they lasted so long is because they were friends first!

  9. Awesome videos! I know that kid is going to be the next great basketball star.

  11. Thank you so much for sharing this, Floricel! I love reading true love stories like this, it’s so amazing, and the way they are still smiling in those pictures today, it’s so heart warming!

  12. The story of this old couple made me ridiculously happy!! It’s nice to see that there are still some people that after years of marriage they still love each other and they can still get along! It gives me hope to know that not every marriage ends in divorce.
