The love story of a Rye couple, longtime Larchmont residents, has gone viral, appearing in People, Mashable, YouTube, CBS New York and The Knot, among others.

Arthur Jacobs, 105-years-old and Marcia Jacobs, 100, recently celebrated 80 years of marriage. Their grandson, Gabe Jacobs, a Brooklyn filmmaker, caught them on video where viewers can hear Arthur tells his bride, "I've loved you for 80  years, honey. That's a lot of time."

According to Gabe, they are one of the oldest living couples in the U.S. And while Marcia communicates with a "hello, hello," she seems to have some sort of understanding of her surroundings when Gabe tells her how lucky she's been.
