Pa. couple has 49-year marriage but no documents

WILMORE, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania couple still plan to celebrate their 49th wedding anniversary next month even though they recently learned their marriage paperwork was never filed.

Frank and Betty Skrout were married Oct. 6, 1960, at a Catholic church in Wilmore, a tiny borough 55 miles east of Pittsburgh. They still live there.

They learned of the paperwork problem when she recently applied for pension benefits and was told she was still listed as single.

The priest who married them never filed a return of marriage document proving he performed the ceremony.

The Skrouts are working with the church to fix the problem but for now are joking about it and say they have no plans to live apart.
