How long does true love last?
People can have their own answers, but none of them are right until we find the real answer. When people break up, it can be disheartening, but those who have stayed together can give us hope.
It doesn’t mean that even if a couple has been together for a long time, they are still sweet and romantic toward each other. But some married couples can still make each other’s hearts beat faster even after 72 years.
A TikTok user named @dudfam shared a video of her grandparents, Faye and Kenneth Babin, that was very sweet.
In the minute-and-a-half video, his grandmother was already in a wheelchair when her grandfather shuffled toward her. The years have changed them, but their love for each other hasn’t changed.
“Baby!” her grandfather yelled, which made her grandmother feel uneasy. She watched as the older man walked toward her. She didn’t know what was in store for her.
Her grandfather, who was old and shaky, got down on one knee.
The older man asked his wife, “Will you be my Valentine?” as he gave her a bar of chocolate and a card. Even though he was old, he never stopped being able to do nice things. Men should pay attention to him.
Their grandmother gave him a big hug and said, “I have always been your Valentine.” It was a very sweet way to respond.
She put the chocolate bar down so she could read what he had written on the card.
“My wife, my friend, my Valentine,” and “You are my only Valentine” were written on the card. Because of you, I’m happy every day.”
This couple just showed that if you stay committed to each other, you can make your love work no matter how long or hard it gets.
People on TikTok loved how the couple showed their love for each other.
“I wish I could go back in time and see them when they were young and in love. One user said, “If he could kneel down at that age, it must have been huge.”
Someone else said, “People who get to know this kind of love in their lives are so lucky.”
The TikTok account of @dudfam also has bits and pieces of the couple’s life.
In one video, their grandfather walks over to where their grandmother is sitting next to the couch. They kissed and hugged like it was nothing out of the ordinary.
In another video, their grandchildren showed them how TikTok users replied to their videos.
The couple had a hard time understanding all the attention, but for them, it’s all about being sweet and loving over the years, which is who they are.
They’ve been together for almost a century.

If you still have both grandparents, ask them about how they met and fell in love. Who knows, maybe you’ll meet your soul mate.
