For Philip and Judi Frabosilo, the idea of marriage was complicated: there was her family to consider, and the war in Vietnam.

The pair say they've known each other since they were just kids, when they met at a disco in Queens. While that club no longer exists, the Frabosilos have maintained what they still call "a perfect blend" in their relationship.

Philip Frabosilo and his wife, Judi, live in Brooklyn, N.Y. Philip drives a cab; Judi works as an office manager. They're both 53 years old — only a couple of months separate them.

Recently, they went to the StoryCorps booth in Grand Central Terminal and recalled how a crossroads in history led to their marriage.

StoryCorps is a national oral history project that records interviews between friends and loved ones. Moments from some of the interviews are heard on 'Morning Edition' each Friday.
