    WOODHAVEN, MI (CNN) -- It's a milestone few couples hit, but on Christmas Day, Frederick and Betty Lou Walters will celebrate 70 years of marriage.

    To help mark their seven decades together, 90-year-old Frederick and 87-year-old Betty Lou renewed their vows at a nursing center in Woodhaven, Michigan Thursday.

    At the ceremony, Frederick talked about the couple's long history. He said, "I started going with this little lady when she was 13 years old and I was 15. When she was 18, and I was 20, and I came down from Alaska, we got married."

    Frederick went on to say that if he lives to be 100, he plans to renew his vows with Betty Lou again.
