Old couple attribute lasting marriage to matching outfits

by | 30th, May 2012

WHAT is the secret of enduing love? Clothes. Matching clothes. Mel and Joey Schwanke of Fremont, Nebraska, are in their 65th year of wedded bliss. Mr. Schwanke told KETV:

“We don’t dare go somewhere without having matching outfits.”

Can it be that they no longer recognise each other by scent or hair styles, reliant now on their shirts and trousers ensemble? The advantages of matching outfits are:

1. Other diners in restaurant think your staff and give you tips

2. If one of you gets lost the other can tell the emergency services what they were last seen wearing

3. All old people look the same. Dressing alike can prevent inappropriate touching or following the wrong person home

4. At least one other person thinks you look great

5. 2-4-1 deals
