Congratulations to Ruth and Lewis Wagoner who celebrated 80 years of marriage Saturday.

Ruth and Lewis got married in 1940 when they were 15 and 17 years old, respectively.

They were under the legal age to get married in California, so they held their wedding in Las Vegas, Nevada.

They enjoy sailing and have even won several national sailing championships together, which they say has kept them young.

They currently live with their daughter in Arroyo Grande.

The couple says their secret to a long-lasting marriage is to accept your partner's faults.
