Commonly, we propose to our beloved ones at a young age with the hope to get married early in life as it’s what people in society have traditionally done for a long time. But that’s not the case for this lovely couple in Phetchabun, Thailand because they held a proposal ceremony even in their golden years.

Here’s a story about how the 72-year-old man ended up proposing to his girlfriend, a 83-year-old woman, after seeing each other for 10 days, and why netizens can’t get enough of the love story.

Love is always beautiful, regardless of age


While most people would stick to society’s norms when it comes to settling down early in life, or finding a  life partner before turning a specific age,  we honestly think that age is just a number when it comes to the right time to marry.

We sincerely wish the couple all the best in finding true love, and are happy that they’ve found love late in life. Because love is always beautiful, regardless of age.
