When a young Jimmy Carter returned from the U.S. Naval Academy, he was in need of a date one evening. So his sister set him up with a family friend who had a crush on him. Yes, it was Rosalynn Carter. Today, almost eight decades later, they are still together, proving to the world that everlasting love does exist. “It’s a full partnership,” said the 39th president, describing his nearly eight-decade-old marriage to his beloved wife, according to the Associated Press.

Last year,  the Carters achieved another milestone for being the longest-married presidential couple in American history. Carter, who has lived the longest of any US president, fell for Rosalynn almost immediately after their first date. According to PEOPLE, the day after their date, Carter told his mom that he’d found the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
