It’s a similar narrative, only this time it’s not about a starry-eyed young couple. Instead, it’s two senior citizens, each above the age of 100.
John and Phyllis Cook are both residents of the Kingston Residence, a Sylvania, Ohio elderly care facility. They met and built a deep bond because their apartments were only a floor apart.
Phyllis, who will turn 103 this summer, told WNWO, “To tell you the truth, we fell in love with each other.” “I understand you would think that’s a little far-fetched for someone our age, but we fell in love with each other.”
“We were just compatible in several ways, and we found ourselves enjoying each other’s company,” John, a 100-year-old WWII veteran, explained. They had both been married twice before and were both widows.
However, their quality time together extends beyond Bingo. “Well, I definitely shouldn’t talk about that,” John said when asked what their favorite thing to do together was.
“He’s not fully dead sexually, and neither am I!” On the other hand, Phyllis was more forthright: “He’s not completely dead sexually, and neither am I!” KHOU 11 was told by Phyllis. “I just don’t believe in hopping in bed as a Christian unless you’re married,” she said, citing her principles.
So John decided to turn her into an honest lady. The two of them went to the courthouse to get a marriage certificate.
They had no idea they’d be married when they left the courthouse.
“It wasn’t the plan,” John told WNWO, “but we arrived here, and they said we could marry you here.”
He apparently couldn’t wait to start married life: “I said, ‘Good, let’s get it over with.'”
The couple has a lot more happy years ahead of them. Despite their age, they may have specific advantageous genes: Phyllis’s mother lived until she was 106.
It’s a tale that illustrates you’re never too old for a new relationship or a fresh start.
However, the pair understands the value of personal space, and Phyllis says they’ll each have their place. Why is it necessary to hasten things?
I wished the happy couple a long and happy marriage! Share their touching story with others!
