Borough President Ruben Diaz honored some of the Bronx's finest couples on Valentine's Day during the 11th annual Sweetheart Luncheon. 

The event at Villa Barone recognized couples who have been married for 50 years or more.

"We were blessed with a nice family, we do everything together, our family's always with us… that's what keeps our marriage going," said Vincent Berreta.
