A  Las Vegas couple who married in 1933 recently celebrated their 78th wedding anniversary with an unexpected present.

The Worldwide Marriage Encounter says Wilbur and Theresa Faiss have been married longer than any other couple in the world.

Theresa was not well enough to talk, but Wilbur was full of advice. He says marriage is all about give and take, and compromise.

Even US President Obama took notice of the special occasion and planned to mention the couple at a campaign stop. But they missed the event. US President Obama has promised to honour them in their hometown.
