Meet The Adorable Nebraska Couple That Has Worn Matching Outfits For 35 Years

It may not work for everyone, but Mel and Joey Schwanke, octogenarians from Nebraska, say that coordinated outfits are the key to their marital bliss.

The couple, who have been married for 64 years, have matched Mel’s ties to Joey’s shirts and dresses for the past 35 years. They have 146 matching sets, mostly in florals (perhaps so they don’t lose each other).

But dressing like twins might not be the only key to the Schwanke’s longlasting marriage–they also reveal in an interview with Komo News that they take turns playing “boss.”

Watch the entire interview and take a peek inside the Schwankes’ closet:
