Jimmy, Rosalynn Carter have been married a record-setting 73 years

Former president Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn have been married for nearly three-quarters of a century, making them the longest-married presidential couple.

The Carter Center wished the pair a happy anniversary on Thursday, noting they have been married “26,765 days,” or well into their 73rd year as a married couple.

Congratulations to Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter. They are now the longest married presidential couple and still going strong at 26,765 days!

The two were married shortly after Carter’s graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1946.
