A couple that dresses together stays together, or at least that's the case for Francis and RoseMary Klontz, who have been married for 68 years.
The lovebirds have been wearing coordinating outfits since they first started dating in high school. Rosemary's mother first got them matching shirts and they've been matching ever since.
The couple first met in primary school, and by the time they were seniors, they had started dating. They were married shortly after at age 19.
The doting husband lets his wife pick out their adorable coordinated ensembles for each day.
"She just lays it out for me, and I don't have to worry about a thing!"
The couple also attribute their long marriage to their strong spiritual values.
"Jesus first, others second, you last – that's the way you spell JOY."
The couple enjoy singing and entertaining and spend their free time volunteering and performing at their local hospital, church and around the house.
"We're chaplains two days a week and love it; we're still singing to our patients."
They also teach a group of special needs children, whom they refer to as 'God's kids'.
