Couple celebrates 75th wedding anniversary

A Washington couple is celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary on Monday. 

Harvey and Evelyn Laborn were married on May 22, 1942. 

"We met in a bowling alley," Mr. Laborn recalled. "She was setting pins and I was setting pins in an adjacent alley. That was in '39."

Mrs. Laborn said there isn't a secret to their long, happy marriage.

"You can't put it in words," she said. "One day at a time." 

The couple, who lived in Kenmore, Washington for 71 of the 75 years, have five kids, ten grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. 

"Marriage is a partnership," Mr. Laborn said. "And, she's a very good partner."
