I thought 29 years of being married was doing pretty good. And then I read about Al and Amelia "Millie" Ferkany, from Flint.

Tomorrow is their 70th wedding anniversary. According to the Naples Daily News, they live in Florida now, but they met, got married and spent most of their lives in Michigan. They met in high school at Flint Technical High School and got married in Flint on Feb. 15, 1947

Millie says, “He’s been a good buddy for 70 years."

And, as for Al, every night he "pats her on the fanny and says, 'I love you.'”

And that's about all you can ask for. Here's their story.

Happy Valentine's Day. Hopefully, you've got a Valentine like Al or Millie.
