Valley couple, Ann and John Koleszar, celebrate 65th wedding anniversary

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Many of us hope to live 65 years, let alone be married that long.

One couple in Scottsdale is proof, time doesn't tarnish true love.

John and Ann Koleszar met at the dentist's office in 1946 and married three years later.

“He was very handsome and he seemed very happy,” says Ann when asked why she fell in love with John.

“I loved her from the first time I saw her,” says John. “She has the prettiest smile, and her eyes, and of course, she had a good figure! Might as well tell you all!”

The secret to more than six decades of wedded bliss?

Sharing values and religious beliefs, say the couple.

Ann says her dad told her to find a "Hungarian man who's Catholic," and she did!
