John And Marie McCrory Have The Best Love Story Ever

Happy 60th anniversary, Grandmere and Grandpere!

Posted on

My grandparents, John and Marie McCrory from Port Chester, New York, celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary this year.

John asked Marie to "go steady" on Christmas Eve when they were 16 years old, and they've been together ever since.

Fun fact: their first Christmas together as teens, John bought Marie a blue sweater. Every year since, he's given her a blue sweater.

They graduated Port Chester High School, held steady jobs, and eventually got married on April 24, 1955.

John and Marie chose Nat King Cole's "Too Young" as their wedding song, and proved they weren't too young to fall in love.

It's truly amazing to sit down at their dining room table, and be in the presence of such a strong couple.

John and Marie have certainly proved that love conquers all.
