PHOTOS: Meet the Longest-Married Couple in America, John and Ann Betar

A couple from Fairfield, Conn., is set to be recognized as the longest-married couple in America for 2013. John and Ann Betar have been married since Nov. 25, 1932 and they will be honored this weekend by Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a Christian group based in California. So what's the secret to staying together for more than 80 years? {C}

John, 101 years old, says, "We just take things as it comes and we're contented and we have lovely family that support us. Just be contented with what you have." Ann, 97, says, "We've had our good times and our bad times, but we've always been together. Devote your time to understanding one another. Really, that's the whole thing." The couple has five children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
