Old People Do Fall in Love...

...and want to get married.
But it seems that there are those who think that's odd.
Some are surprised when I say I'm engaged. No, I don't have a rock. I have a silver ring with an unusual heart-shaped turquoise. We both love silver and turquoise jewelry - one of the many likes we share.
Yes, I'm 63, wrinkled, chubby and cranky at times. But this man fell in love with me and I'm very happy about that.
Yes, he's 69, chubby with bad knees but I think he's the handsomest, funniest, silliest, most intelligent man I know and I love and adore him.
And yes, we want to show the world that we love each other and are committed to each other and we're doing that by getting married...
And having a ceremony...
And inviting friends and family...
And having a small reception after the ceremony.
Except...
Some people are surprised when we ask about a place for a wedding...
We're having a difficult time finding a place for a "small" wedding...
We're having a difficult time finding someone to officiate.
But, yes, old people do fall in love and even in the autumn years, they do get married...
And they do live happily ever after.

Just passing through, but congratulations on finding love. All you need to be legally married is a notary public and you can hire them easily enough. Or you could be legally married in courthouse and then have a ceremony with just a friend officiating.

Sounds good. It's nice to hear about a happy ending ... and why should it have to happen when you're in your twenties? (Who really knows what they want at that age anyway??)
