Secret to a long, happy marriage? Matching outfits

Say it ain’t so.

According to a Nebraska couple celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary, a couple who dresses together, stays together. Sorry that didn’t rhyme. The two lovebirds starting wearing custom-made matching outfits over 30 years ago, and swear that it’s been the glue that binds them together.

Neither would dream of leaving the house without matching the other. Lest you think this is a couple donning the same running suits or, worse, matching sweatshirts, think again.

This is a dapper and his dandy. He wears a sports coat and jacket every day, and his tie always matches his wife’s blouse or dress. According to KETV, the couple has over 170 combinations, which carry them through half a year.

Guess what their last name is? Appropriately–Schwanke. As in….swank-kay.
