A loved up couple say matching outfits are the secret to their 68-year marriage.
Rosemary and Francis Klontz – who tied the knot almost seven decades ago – first met in the ninth grade, and while he instantly knew she was the one, she took a little bit of convincing because of his questionable fashion sense.
The couple told Inside Edition how Rosemary’s solution was helped by making sure they wore matching clothes.
Francis said: “Dressing alike is a simple thing for me because I don’t have to worry.”
It has even become a family tradition after grandson Jonathan told fiancee Kassy the lovely story on their first date.
She added: “On our first date, he told me that his grandparents had matched since the day they started dating and I looked at him and said, ‘Can we do that?’ and he said yes.” They’ve started his and hers matching clothing line called Baezies for other pairs who want to coordinate their clothes.
Matching attire is not a brand new concept in the world. In South Korea, it is common for young couples to match in his and her apparel. With more couples taking up the trend, it could be the running theme for many young couples, eager to profess their love to the world.
