Long-Married Couple, Ralph and Tillie Lee Pullin, Reveals Secret To Their 75-Year Marriage (VIDEO)

Ralph and Tillie Lee Pullin are one of Georgia's longest-living married couples.

The pair -- who tied the knot in 1938 -- recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary and have received congratulations from the mayor, the local newspaper and even President Obama.

In an interview with "Good Day Atlanta's" Paul Milliken, the Pullins both agreed that it's their faith that has kept them together for all this time.

"Our marriage was like the ocean," Ralph explained. "I'm not trying to say big words, but you know how the ocean waves go up and down? At the bottom, God was there. And every time we hit bottom, God pushed us back up."
