The two ladies of a certain age were captured in this video from 2014 and at the time they were looking forward to celebrating their 50th anniversary as a couple, after having been married the year before.

“I guess at 90, we don’t have to worry about anyone saying anything to us or about us…we were married always in our hearts,” they reveal during the interview.

Watch a video celebrating the couple’s history below.
