More than 38 years after their divorce, Australian couple Rocco and Estelle Dilizio are set to tie the knot again later this year.

"It worked out in the end -- I was the first choice and the best choice," Estelle told The Courier-Mail in a story published Monday.

Rocco and Estelle, now 73- and 72-years-old, respectively, eloped when they were teenagers back in 1958. They split up in 1974 after 16 years of marriage and four children together.

According to The Courier-Mail, both went on to marry other people after the split. Then, in 2010, the ex-couple reunited at a Melbourne Cup function where they rekindled their romance. Click over to The Courier-Mail for more on their love story.

It's not the first time a long-divorced couple has kissed and made up many years later. In August 2012, Lena Henderson and Roland Davis -- both 85 years old at the time -- remarried 48 years after their 1966 divorce. And in 2005, Amerah Henrene Shabazz-Bridges and B.C. Bridges of Memphis, Tenn. remarried after 31 years apart.
