To-day, August 29, 2004, Mercia and Ben
celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary.

But Mercia has been married relatively longer than Ben,
namely, 66.6666666666666666! percent of her life .......

NOTE: I do not want to write out the infinite series of 6's, so that's why I use the symbol "!"

While Ben has only been wedded for
55.555555555555! percent of his life!

And if one could add up percentages, the two of them together
were unmarried for 77.77777777777777777777! % of their lives.....

Now it should be a singe (cinch, sinch?) to figure out
not only their wedding date but also
how old each of them was at their wedding. Answers ????
