Montana Couple Go Viral After Marrying at Age 91
Hollywood is always looking for original ideas. Maybe someone will find interest in a couple of 91-year-old Montana lovebirds and share their story on the big screen. If no major blockbuster is in the works, they can at least say they've had their fair share of media recognition after saying their "I do's" last week in Lakeside, MT.
Did you see the story of Ivan and Gerry? These two youngsters have been dating for more than a decade and decided the time was right to tie the knot. Family gathered in protective face coverings at the end of July to see the happy couple start the rest of their lives together. And since COVID-19 takes the fun out of everything these days, they streamed the ceremony on Facebook for friends and family that weren't able to attend in person.Even thought they've dated for more then ten years, they have a much longer history together. They met in first grade, were friends through high school, both married other people, they continued to run into one another through the years, both lost their spouses, they went to a function together at age 78 and have been by each others side ever since.
We have to give Ivan credit for being persistent. He asked Gerry to marry him years ago but she wasn't quite ready after losing her previous husband. Thankfully Ivan decided to ask again and now everybody has been able to smile because of their story.
Congrats to the happy couple who have been featured in news stories, online articles, TMZ, and more!
