No word on whether they've been married that long or anything regarding how they met. I don't know if that's even relevant. They've been together since he was 48 and she was 22. Using the "half your age + 7" as the lower-end boundary for how young you could reasonably date, at 59 you shouldn't be dating anybody younger than 36 years old. At 48, that cutoff should be 31 years old. FIRST: this goes without saying --- "good for them, and we wish them well. Obviously what they have works for them". That being said, it's a more entertaining conversation topic to throw in "what the hell are they doing together?"
