Man Writes Love Letters To His Wife Every Day For 40 Years

One New Jersey man may have discovered the secret to a lasting marriage.

For nearly 40 years, 74-year-old Bill Bresnan has written a love letter to his wife Kristen every day. And nothing gets in his way.

"I give her the cards just before we go to bed. I draw them, sometimes during the day. Sometimes I buy them if I happen to be somewhere. If Kris is away I mail it to wherever she is going to be," he said.

His wife keeps the love filed chronologically in more than 20 boxes in the attic.

She says, "They mean everything, really, to me. I would be so heartbroken if there was a night when I didn't get a card."

But the Bresnans will have to stick it out a few more years to meet the record for longest marriage.

Last week, Dale and Alice Rockey were given a national award for being the longest married couple in America: 81 years. And they still act like newlyweds.
