Meet The Longest Married Couple In The US

marriageAccording to IB Times –

The longest-married couple in the United States is getting ready to celebrate an 81st wedding anniversary. According to Reuters, John and Ann Betar eloped on Nov. 25, 1932, leaving their Syrian neighborhood in Bridgeport, Conn. for New York City to start a new life together in order to thwart Ann’s father’s plan of marrying her to a man 20 years her elder. She was 17 years old and John was 21. “Everyone was hopping mad, and my wife’s aunt consoled my father-in-law by telling him not to worry, the marriage won’t last,” said John, who is now 102.

Magic Snakes Married In Buddhist Ceremony

Yes, 2 snakes were wedded in a ceremony in Cambodia. These were actual reptile-type snakes, not lawyers. The Buddhists consider the snakes “magical” and hundreds of villagers attended the ceremony. I had to check the calendar – it is the 21st. century.

The GladstoneObserver reported –

HUNDREDS of villagers have flocked to a wedding ceremony between a 4.8-metre, 90-kg female python and her slightly smaller mate – both believed to be magic snakes that bring prosperity and peace. The two-hour ceremony in Svay Rolum village, 20km south of the capital, Phnom Penh, ended on Monday with two Buddhist monks blessing the pair and villagers showering them with flowers as wedding music played. Most Cambodians, almost all Buddhists, also subscribe to animism – a belief that spirits can inhabit living and inanimate objects. Whenever an odd animal makes an appearance, it is cause for the superstitious to celebrate. “We married these pythons to ask for health and prosperity in our village,” said 41-year-old Neth Vy, owner of the female python named Chamrouen. “We were told (by fortunetellers) that the two pythons are husband and wife and they need to live together, and if we don’t marry them we will meet bad luck,” said Neth Vy, who found the then-tiny python while fishing 16 years ago. He said since the snake became part of the household, the family’s living conditions had steadily improved and no misfortune had befallen them. The male python, named Kroung Pich, was caught 12 days ago by Hin Mao, a 44-year-old, childless woman who said she regarded it as her son.
