A Union County couple is celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary this month. 


Lee and Nona Long got married on July 19, 1947, and will celebrate 70 years of wedded bliss next week.


Sunday, family and friends came out to celebrate the Longs' special occasion and watched the couple renew their vows at First Christian Church in Tyrone. 


The couple said they've spent a long time together and their successful marriage is all thanks to their church. 

"We've stayed together because we've prayed together," Mrs. Long told FOX 5. "We pray together every day, and I think that's part of the secret." 

Mr. and Mrs. Long have three children, four grandchildren and give great-grandchildren. 

The Longs have both lived their entire lives in the south Atlanta area.
