When couples first walk down the aisle, they are often consumed with the moment giving little thought to anything else, but once the big day is long gone, what is it that really holds people together?
There probably really isn't any one true answer for everyone as we are all different and place value on many varying things within a relationship, but there are some things that we would likely all agree on.
Perhaps honesty, loyalty, love, respect and attraction? Matching outfits? yes matching outfits.
According to this gorgeous couple, matching outfits is the secret to their long and happy 65 year marriage.
Check out this story as told by ninemsn.com.au:
An octogenarian couple have revealed the secret to their 65 years of marital bliss — matching outfits.
Joey Schwanke, 81, and her husband Mel, 86, bought their first custom-made matching outfits in 1976 and have dressed alike ever since.
They now own 146 bespoke coordinating ensembles and never leave their home in Fremont, Nebraska, in anything else.
"We don't dare go somewhere without having matching outfits," Mel told KETV. "Every day, every single day, my tie matches her dress."
Mel and Joey think their matching wardrobes "enhance" their relationship, but admit there's more to a happy marriage than dressing alike.
"To this day, if he does something for me I thank him," Joey told the Huffington Post.
"If we run into each other, we say excuse me. We fully respect each other and consider each other with every decision we make."
