Barbara and John were married to one another over 50 years ago, but they divorced after many years, only to remain separated for a few. They had been back together for about 20 years when they decided to officially get married again. They had an intimate wedding with their immediate family which consisted of their 5 children, 18 grandchildren (their family has grown since) and Barbara's father. The wedding took place at their daughter's house in Westfield, New Jersey on Christmas Eve.
