Couple Married for 75 Years Say They’ve Never Had an Argument

Aug 08, 2015

A Wisconsin couple who have been married for 75 years say they’ve never had an argument. Arlene and Richard Baughman were wed in 1940, two years before Richard was drafted to serve in World War II. The couple, who met on a movie date with friends, eventually had six children. Arlene still wears her original wedding ring.

Through it all, the two say they’ve never gotten in a fight. "If we had differences we just talked about it," Richard told WNYT.

"We always said, we didn't have dishes to throw or shoes to throw because we couldn't afford it. So, we had to get along!" Arlene said.
