    He picked her up on a tractor for their first date. 74 years on...

    Newlywed Bob Harrod's been missing five years today, and I wanted to find a story about marriage that would make people smile. I think this one will.

    94 year-olds Jessie and Alvin Bolich of Idaho celebrate their 74th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow, 28th July.They were young sweethearts in Nebraska during the Great Depression, and he picked her up on a tractor for one of their earliest dates. A long, loving marriage hasn't made them sentimental though: Just look at their answer when the journalist asks the obvious question at the end of the article.

    'And I had to ask, “What is the key to staying married for so long?”

    “Just like I told my grandson, ‘Don’t talk back,’” Alvin said.

    Jessie’s response?

    “I don’t know. We’ve both lost our hearing.”

    Oh I love it! And I'm sharing it with my dad and step-mother. Too cute.

    Happy Anniversary to the wise couple!
