A couple in England recently married after getting engaged 50 years ago. John Searle and Maggie Crook first met as teenagers back in 1952 and were engaged by the time they turned 18.
Sadly, the couple parted before they were able to get married. Mrs. Searle moved to Canada to work as a nurse while Mr. Searle joined the Royal Marines.
Mr. Searle eventually became a salesman and married twice before he was widowed four years ago. Mrs. Searle never got married and never forgot her teenage sweetheart. They stayed in touch over the years and finally re-ignited their love in 2007.
The couple, both 69 now, married last Wednesday, five decades after first making their wedding plans. Now who says true love is dead?
Just a Guy Thing
There you go Mr. Iggles you have 38 more years to catch this couple. Good luck!
