The Oldest Newlyweds! Getting Married After 27 Years

After 27 years together, George made an honest woman out of Doreen! Read their story.

Love is transformative. We all want it and need it no matter what our age. So it’s no surprise that a much older UK couple got married this past Saturday. George Kirby, 103, and Doreen Luckie, 91, are now the world’s oldest newlyweds.

They met in 1988 through a social group that organizes outings for seniors and promotes friendships among seniors. George was divorced and Doreen was a widow. They hit it off, fell in love, and after being together and cohabiting for 27 years, they decided to tie the knot. They have children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and he finally decided to make an honest woman out of her! I kid.

Why did they wait so long to get married? Doreen didn’t want to deal with the wedding hoopla. As a couple, they “didn’t want to bother,” she told AFP. Then George got all romantical and proposed to her on Valentine’s Day. Well, what’s a girl to do but say yes!

So, cheers to love and marriage! Here’s to being in love and starting over as many times as needed in order to be happy.
