Is Dressing Alike The Secret To A Lasting Relationship? (This Couple Says Yes!)

The secret to a happy, lengthy marriage can be as complicated as expensive therapy, vacations, and regimented schedules...or as simple as mandatory dessert dates on Thursdays. For the Schwankes, the secret is matching outfits.
Mel, 86, and Joey, 81, have been married for 64 years, and have had over 146 outfits custom-made to sustain them through the years. With that kind of wardrobe, the duo wouldn't have to repeat outfits for over four months. Hey — if it worked for these guys, maybe these kids (also, a certain editor's mom) are onto something, too...
