Marriage Hall Of Fame

We began this unique Hall of Fame to honor both the institution of marriage and individual marriages that have gone the distance because “strong marriages that last a lifetime are the bedrock for a strong Wisconsin.”

Applying to the Hall of Fame is open to any married couple in Wisconsin who has been married for sixty or more years. No awards will be given posthumously. Marriage Hall of Fame Inductees will be published on our website by March. By filling out the application, couples consent to have their names, story, and photos published on our website. 2024 applications are now closed.
