For Mel and Joey Schwanke, their 65-year marriage is a match made in the closet.|
The couple from a small city outside Omaha, Nebraska, has 146 custom-made, matching outfits. And they never leave the house unless they are dressed in the same pattern.It's one thing that has helped keep them so close through six and a half decades working side-by-side at a flower shop they own in Fremont.
Mel's tie, and often his jacket, are cut from the same cloth at Joey's dresses. The outfits are usual floral-themed, a reference to their business.
Secret to success: Mel and Joey Schwanke leave the house every day with Mr Schwanke's tie matching Mrs Schwanke's dress
