This is quite remarkable, Art. Would be interesting to learn the full story. Probably somewhere there is a database on age at marriage.
Thanx for pointing this out.
Look at the age of this couple being married. They are the oldest couple I've seen being recorded for a marriage .... 80 & 71 years old.
