While lots of newlywed couples pose for pictures to show off their love prior to their special day, how will their relationship hold up after 80 years?
Song Qinglin and his wife Song Lishi, both 103 years old, have been together now for eight decades. Tencent reports that the couple has four children. Of course, those children have had their own children, and then those children have also had children of their own. Four generations all live together under one roof in Fuyang city, Anhui province.
To help the two lovebirds celebrate their 80th wedding anniversary, some good Samaritans from a local volunteer center helped to buy them a wedding dress and gifts. Back in 1936, the couple couldn’t afford to get any pictures taken. Their wedding banquet was a mere three dishes.
One volunteer helped grandma Song apply some rose lipstick.
And she in turn helped her hubby button up his dress shirt.
Of course, beside these two, China is home to many more adorable elderly couples who have seen their pics go viral online. Like this 81-year-old Prince Charming and his Cinderella…
And this 95-year-old couple who celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in style…
And this incredible 98-year-old couple who recreated their wedding pictures on their 70th anniversary…
Only true love stands the test of time.
