    FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — John and Ann Betar weren't supposed to get married. Her father had arranged for her to wed another man, but she and John fled Bridgeport and eloped in New York.

    That was more than 80 years ago. The couple is still happily hitched, a fact that has led to their naming as the "longest married couple" in the U.S. for 2013 by Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a Christian marriage group based in San Bernardino, Calif.

    The Betars are scheduled to receive a plaque and other gifts from the group at their granddaughter's home in Fairfield on Saturday.

    They told the New York Daily News that there are no secrets to a long marriage, only a few simple rules.

    "We just live with contentment and we don't live beyond our means," John Betar said. "Just go with the flow."................
