Wedding Bells Ring for U.S. Couple After 78 Years

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Zyness O'Haver may have suffered from one of the worst cases of cold feet in the history of marriage.

After almost 78 years of living with Sallie Warren, he finally decided to pop the question and the Oklahoma City couple became husband and wife on Wednesday.

O'Haver 95, told reporters, "It was about time I made an honest woman" out of his new wife, who is 94.

With three of their grandchildren on hand, the two were wed in the Oklahoma County Courthouse. The grandchildren pushed for the wedding, saying it was about time the two tied the knot.

An anxious O'Haver jumped the gun during the ceremony however, saying "I sure do," well before Judge D. Fred Doak asked the couple to exchange wedding vows.

In response to the positive answer from her groom-to-be, Warren, dressed in an ivory colored dress, gave O'Haver a premature kiss, normally given after a couple is pronounced man and wife.

"I can't remember when I've married a more anxious couple," Doak told reporters.

When Zyness met Sallie, the two were teenagers, Calvin Coolidge was the U.S. president and it would still be about 25 years before televisions started making its way into American homes.

The two started living together as teenagers in 1925 and never got around to making their union official, even though most of their neighbors thought they were married.

The newlyweds did not announce any plans for a honeymoon.

Looks like some guys take awhile to make up their minds!
