“My parents celebrate their 40th Anniversary today. Some things never change.” On 12 July 2015, Jay Johnson posted these super sweet photos of his parents on social media. Carolyn and Dexter Johnson were married 40 years ago in Cleveland, Ohio. The groom was 27 at the time, the bride, 20.
Dex and Carrie met in a bar called the Lower Level. “She was sitting there with her cousins,” Dex told TODAY.com, “I saw her and I went up to her and I said, ‘Do you wanna boogie?’ — B-O-O-G-I-E, boogie –That was the common term for ‘do you want to dance’ back then.” With encouragement from her cousins, Carrie agreed to dance with Dex. The two hit it off on the dance floor of the bar, and were married in 1975. Forty years later, the love-struck couple threw back on their wedding attire to recreate the photos they took the day they were wed.
“We’re still very much in love,” Dex told TODAY.com. “We’ve always [taken] one day at a time.” When asked what his secret was for an enduring marriage, Dex added, “Always kiss her goodnight and say ‘I love you, baby.'”
If you ever wondered if everlasting love exists, we hope that these photos have convinced you so.
