A 98-year-old man and his 90-year-old lover have tied the knot after dating for 30 long years.

Jean Reed took widower Ted Parsons’s hand in marriage after the 98-year-old Second World War veteran proposed to her earlier this year in Surrey, a county in the South East of England, the Daily Express reported.

Parsons grew close to Reed after his wife of 50 years suddenly passed away in the 1980s.

The couple, who have been living together for the last 20 years, walked down the aisle arm-in-arm during a ceremony in front of family and friends.
Parsons said that he loves his new wife very much and it keeps growing with age.
