President and Mrs. Carter Celebrate 75th Anniversary

They still live in the same small town where they grew up.

Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary on Wednesday. At the age of 96, President Carter is the longest-living president in history.

He was a young midshipman looking for a date one evening while he was home on leave from the Naval Academy, so his younger sister paired him with a family friend who already had a crush.

Seven and a half decades later, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter are still together, still in that same tiny town where they had their first date. In between, they have traveled the world as Naval officer and military spouse, as U.S. president and first lady, and finally as human rights and public health ambassadors.

“It’s a full partnership,” the former president said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For former President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter as they celebrate 75 years of marriage.
  • For good health for the two of them, in their 90s, as they continue with the work they love doing.
