Contest: The Search For Montclair's Longest-Lasting Couple

Tell us who has been married a very very long time.


New Jersey may have the lowest divorce rates—only 6.1 per 1,000 men and 6 per 1,000 women get divorced here according to a 2009 survey—but happily ever afters still don't come easy.

When it comes to well-known couples, for example, only a few such as Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have managed to stay together longer than 20 years.

And that's why, with Valentine's Day only a heartbeat away, Montclair Patch is looking for the couple who's been married the longest in Montclair.

The couple can win a $50 gift certificate to their favorite local restaurant. We also will profile the lucky couple—and find out how they stayed together.

All you have to do is send an email to Shelley@patch.com. Please let us know of any couple who has been married a long time. Entries must be submitted by Sunday, Feb. 12 at 12 p.m. ET. Read 

If you aren’t already signed up—we’ll also register anyone who emails for our free daily email with all the latest headlines from Montclair Patch. 

Who says Valentine’s Day has to be all about the honeymooners? Anyone can get together. Staying together is what's tough.

So let's hear from you today! Who out there has been married a very very long time?? Email Shelley@patch.com.
