The Carters are still going strong after more than 73 years, or twenty-six thousand seven hundred and sixty-seven days—and counting, to be specific.
Jimmy Carter is 95-years-old. Rosalynn is 92.
Rosalynn Smith met her future husband after she became friends with Jimmy's younger sister, who grew up just three miles away. She called Jimmy "the most handsome young man I had ever seen." The couple went on their first date in 1945 and married the following year when he was 21 and she was 18, but Carter didn't win his wife over with his first proposal.
The future first lady actually rejected the first proposal. She made a promise to her father, who died when she was 12 years old, that she would finish college before marrying. This is according to a story she shared in her memoir, "First Lady From the Plains."
Over the years, the Carters have been happy to be captured on the "kiss cam" at sports games. The former president most recently planted a big kiss on his wife after they were singled out at the Atlanta Hawks game in February.
"The best thing I ever did was marrying Rosalynn," he said.
Jimmy beat cancer and the couple has continued to work together on their passion projects, including building homes for Habitat for Humanity. The former president needed 14 stitches after falling at his home in Georgia earlier this month, however he was back building houses days later, alongside his longtime love.
Jimmy also holds another record. He celebrated his 95th birthday on Oct. 1, becoming the first president to ever reach that age.
Congratulations Jimmy and Rosalynn! May your sweet love story see many more happy days to come.
