Video: Rick and Ann Scott talk 41 years of marriage

Nestled on a loveseat in the governor's mansion, Gov. Rick Scott and wife Ann gush about what it's like to be married to each other 41 years.

Saturday is the couple's wedding anniversary.

In the short video posted on the governor's Facebook page, Rick asks Ann about the secret to a long marriage. Her answer: Be flexible. Laugh at yourself and each other. Stay committed.

She talked about thinking Rick was "pretty cute" when they met as high school seniors in North Kansas City. "When I had hair?" Rick asked. "Yes, when you had hair," Ann laughed. "There was just something special about him. He was different from other boys I had dated."

Rick's advice: "Marry a wonderful person. And then just cherish them, be sweet and have lots of fun in the journey. Enjoy the journey."
