THE BRONX - A Bronx couple today celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

Barbara and Ralph Richardson renewed their vows today. In their 50 years together, they have raised five children. They have 16 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

The couple met in 1963. Barbara had just arrived in New York City from Florida and decided to stop at a local pub, where Ralph spotted her from across the room. A year later, they were married.

This is the second time that the couple renewed their vows.
