This week the Valentines and the Southgates celebrated their 70th wedding anniversaries.

The two couples not only share the same retirement home, but also the same wedding day.

The 90-year-olds reminisced about life, love and the importance of commitment.

"We met at church at a young people's group," said Marion Valentine, who's been married to her husband, Bill, for 70 years.

"One way or the other, it all works out," she coninued. "You look back [and think] 'Yeah, what were you worrying about? What were you thinking?'"

"The good Lord was right there," Marion added.

Howard Southgate said his 70-year marriage to his wife, Claudine, has been wedded bliss.

"We never had a fallout. We never have. If one said, 'Let's do this,' we did it and vice versa," he said.

Both couples say they've lived full lives.

Now, they're focusing on enjoying the rest of the time God gives them.
