SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s John and Phyllis Cook are living proof love is ageless.
WNWO-TV reports the couple living at retirement facility in Sylvania went to get their marriage license at the county courthouse in Toledo late last month and decided to tie the knot there and then. John just turned 100. Phyllis will be 103 in August.
The couple’s relationship after dating a year had grown to the point where Phyllis thought it best they get married. She says it might seem “far-fetched” at their age, “but we fell in love with each other.”
Both were married twice previously to spouses who died. They spend lots of time together, but have decided to maintain their own apartments.
Asked what their favorite activity is, John replied: “Well, I probably shouldn’t talk about that.”
