Golden and Silver Marriage Jubilee at Cathedral

On this Valentine's Day weekend, 79 couples were recognized for reaching milestones in their marriages. Couples who have been married for more than 25 and 50 years renewed their wedding vows at a special mass at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Savannah.

They all received flowers and certificates at the cathedral's annual Golden and Silver Marriage Jubilee.

Couples say the most important thing to remember is that marriage is a gift.

"It's been great, not always what you wanted, but by the grace of God, we have been hanging in all these years and we are very happy," said Jewel Nettles, who's been with her Major for 50 years.

Also married for 50 years, Paul Kass told us, "All the problems that people have, it's important that people stay together and marriage is a blessing." He attended the ceremony with his wife Mary.

Following the mass, the couples took pictures with Bishop Boland.
