Former first couple George and Barbara Bush's relationship is a true love story, described by granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager as "remarkable." They met at a Christmas dance. She was 17. He was 18. Two years later they were married. Now 73 years later, with Barbara Bush declining further medical care for health problems, they are the longest-married couple in presidential history.
