Couple makes their marriage last by matching their outfits5/28/2012
This couple is a match made in heaven. Literally. For more than three decades, Mel and Joey Schwanke have gone to lengthy measures to make sure their outfits coordinate precisely, carefully customizing Mel's tie to match Joey's dress. "We don't dare go somewhere without having matching outfits," Mel said. The couple has 146 of the custom-tailored outfits, and, though neither of them can remember exactly when the quirky tradition began, they both contend it's one of the elements that have held their marriage together an impressive 65 years. (In addition, Joey notes the decision "early in the game" that she would be the boss after 5 p.m. has helped greatly).
What do you think is the key to a long marriage?
