There’s a big celebration happening in Rhode Island that’s been three-quarters of a century in the making.
Robert and Ann Gorman are marking a lifetime of love with their diamond anniversary, celebrating 75 years together.
“I’m a very lucky guy,” Robert said. “I agree to that,” Ann responded.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, just 0.1 percent of all marriages last 70 years.
The couple first met in the 1940s, after Robert returned from World War II, while working at a mill.
They were married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel on Federal Hill, two years later.
