Usually people get hung up on how young a bride and groom are, not how old. There’s definitely some different opinions on how young is too young to get married, but what about being too old?
Well, they say age brings wisdom, and if so, British couple James Mason, 93, and his 85-year-old bride Peggy Clark are probably the wisest newlyweds out there to date. Believe it or not, though, the couple’s combined age of 178 isn’t quite enough to break any world records: the current record was set in 2002 by a French couple with a combined age of 190 years!
It’s just a little bit out of the ordinary to have such a seasoned couple make the marriage commitment, but to Mason and Clark, their love was just found a little later in life. Clark said she had to make the first move, asking Mason did he “come here often” referring to the Elderly Day Center both resided at. Mason replied, “Every day,” and the couple has been inseparable since. Weeks after they first met, the couple wed on Clark’s 185th birthday.
I guess this just goes to show, you never get too old for some things! Here’s hoping the happy, albeit older, couple have a wonderful marriage and many anniversaries together!
