It's been 50 years since Kevin and Leonie Riolo said "I do".
"It feels like 105," joked Kevin.
"No, it's gone so quickly. Your whole life goes so quickly."
The couple were introduced to one another by a mutual friend at a Thirroul first-grade rugby league game, in which Kevin was playing.
After the match, they ducked over to Wollongong Leagues Club for a drink and were married just over a year later, on August 26, 1963.
They moved into their Figtree home in 1967, where they have lived ever since, and have three children and six grandchildren.
"Family is the most important thing. Our three children still live in Wollongong, within 10 minutes of us, so the grandkids have grown up with us too," said Kevin.
Although the pair celebrated their golden anniversary with a European river cruise and a family dinner last month, they decided to renew their vows at the annual Marriage Anniversaries Mass in Wollongong yesterday.
They were one of 76 couples who took part in the celebration at St John Vianney's Co-Cathedral in Fairy Meadow, clocking up a total of 3500 years of wedded bliss between them.
The group included a couple who had managed a staggering 72 years of marriage, as well as two couples celebrating 65 years, 11 couples marking 60 years and another 30 couples who had reached 50 years.
Leonie said the secret to a long-lasting marriage was simple.
"Always be there for each other, share your thoughts and problems and have a good laugh."
