Mel and Joey Schwanke dressed the same for over 30 years
The couple that dresses together stays together… at least it’s worked for Mel and Joey Schwanke.
The couple from Fremont, Nebraska, has been married for 65 years. For at least the past 30 years, they have been wearing matching outfits.
"We don't dare go somewhere without having matching outfits," Mel said, according to the ABC station in Omaha.
The two have 146 custom-made matching outfits, and they've been wearing them for so long, they don't remember when it started, the station reported.
Mel, 86, says his tie matches the dress Joey, 81, is wearing that day.
