Worldwide Marriage Encounter Seeks Longest Married Couple

Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) is sponsoring its 11th annual search for the longest married couple in the United States. 

Nominations, which are open to all husband and wife couples regardless of religious affiliation, may be submitted through Sept. 10. They may be submitted online at or mailed to Dick and Diane Baumbach, 1332 Deer Trail, Rockledge, FL 32955 or by calling (321) 652-8262. 

When nominating a couple, please include their names, wedding date and the city and state where they currently reside. Also include a contact phone or e-mail address of the individual nominating the couple. As a matter of safety and protection, the nominators of the winning couples are initially contacted and not the actual winners. 

The national and individual state winners will be recognized in October.  The state winners will receive a special certificate of achievement from the WWME movement. 

Worldwide Marriage Encounter has offered weekend experiences, either in person or virtually, for couples and priests for more than 50 years and is considered the original faith-based marriage enrichment program. 

For more information on the Longest Married Couple project, call Mary-Jo McLaughlin at the Catholic Family Services Office at (860) 848-2237, ext. 312.
