LONGMEADOW, Mass (WGGB)- Eight couple joined today at the Glenmeadow Retirement Community in Longmeadow to renew their vows.

Murray and Ruth Federman, the longest married couple there today, have been married 72 years.

They remember the day they met like it was yesterday. “I met him when I was 15, he moved right next door to me,” says Ruth.

“By grace of God .. she was the girl next door.. I never let her go,” adds Murray.

Febuary the 14th is the perfect day for Mr. and Mrs. Swartz to renew their vows. They got engaged on Valentine’s Day 70 years ago.

Many family and friends gathered to watch today’s ceremony. All together, these couples represent 527 years of marriage. Today we learned the two key words to success…

“You have to say, Yes Dear,” agreed both Mr. Federman and Mr. Swartz.

All couples today show what Valentine’s Day and the true meaning of love is all about.
