Former president Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn have been married for nearly three-quarters of a century, making them the longest-married presidential couple.

The Carter Center wished the pair a happy anniversary on Thursday, noting they have been married “26,765 days,” or well into their 73rd year as a married couple.

The two were married shortly after Carter’s graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1946.
