When it comes to marriage, two love birds in Romulus, Mich. are experts. Manuel and Dorothy Thomas celebrated 73 years of marriage.Both of them are 91 years old and going strong. They said dancing brought them together but faith and togetherness kept them inseparable for so many years.

"Always be loving and forgiving to your mate. That's the way I was and it seems to have worked out pretty good," said Dorothy Thomas.

Manuel and Dorothy also said they rely on prayer to get them through difficult times.

Their kids, now adults, said they're thankful to their mom and dad for all the years of love and kindness.
