Couple spends 50th anniversary in same hotel as wedding

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -  Pat and Phil Sciascia got married 50 years ago, and now they’re celebrating the anniversary the same way the celebrated their nuptials.

They celebrated by spending the night at the Copley Hotel, in the same room where they honeymooned.

“I said, ‘you know, we spent our honeymoon nights there on Saturday and Sunday and we paid $13.75 a night, the total bill was $27.50’ and they couldn’t believe it" she said.

The Sciascias even got the same price, 50 years later. They’re also getting the honeymoon they always dreamed of.

"We had eventually wanted to go to Bermuda when we first married but nobody had any money, we didn’t have any money, our parents didn’t have any money for us" she said.

A lot has changed in five decades, including the view from their room, but their love has stayed just as strong.

"When people ask me why, how'd you stay married 50 years, I say just don’t ever have enough money to pay a lawyer for a divorce,” she said.
