Longest living married couple in the U.S. honored

- A Carlsbad couple is being honored as the longest married couple in America.

Maury and Helen Goosenberg have been married for 80 years! They were honored over the weekend by the group "Worldwide Marriage Encounter" before the couple's children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

The ceremony even included a congressional proclamation. Mrs. Goosenberg says their marriage has survived for so long because of their ability to laugh at the little things…things that annoy so many couples.

Maury Goosenberg is 102 and Helen is just 100-years young.

The couple eloped in Philadelphia in 1935.
