A 97-year-old bride and her 86-year-old groom are proving that when it comes to love, age ain't nothin' but a number.
The New York Times reported Sunday that Ada Bryant, 97, and Robert Haire, 86, got married on Saturday, five years after they met at their Delaware retirement home.
Haire and Bryant began going to meals together in 2011, four months after Haire's wife Jean died. In January 2012 Haire slipped a poem declaring his love for Bryant under her door. The following Valentine's Day, Haire gave Bryant a sapphire he hoped to have turned into an engagement ring. Bryant declined his proposal, but the two continued their courtship anyway.
In August 2012, Bryant finally accepted Haire's proposal. She said she didn't want to get married at first because she doesn't have that many years ahead of her.
“But he said, ‘That’s all the more reason,’" Bryant told The Times. "I like him very much. I love him. So we’re going to be married.”
