'Still going strong': Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter become longest-married presidential couple

At 26,765 days — that's more than 73 years — the Carters surpassed the previous record held by former President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush .

The Carters married July 7, 1946, in a Methodist church in their hometown of Plains, Georgia, when he was 21 and she was 18. The Bushes wed Jan. 6, 1945. They had been married 73 years and 111 days when Barbara Bush died in April 2018.

Even after more than seven decades together, including four years in the White House, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter continue to stay in the public spotlight, with their most recent appearance in Nashville last week to help build 21 houses for a Habitat for Humanity project.
