The Platinum Anniversary couple

Only 1% of marriages in the United States make it to the platinum anniversary.
The George’s are part of that exclusive club.
In April of 2017, Tony George, 93 and Sophia George, 88 renewed their wedding vows after celebrating 70 years of marriage in front of friends and family in Metro Detroit.
As time goes by it is more unlikely for these type of anniversaries to happen as more people are now getting married at an older age.
