THEY are a devoted couple who want to make the ultimate commitment to each other – by getting married.
What makes that decision all the more special is that Margaret Dufty is 92 and the bridegroom waiting for her when she arrives to tie the knot in a civil ceremony in Outlane next week will be her fiance, John Hind who is 85.
The couple, who met through veterans’ charity St Dunstan’s, have both suffered ill health but have battled through together.
John says they get on well, have a lot in common and never argue. Marriage, he says, will make their lives even more special.
A perfect recipe for wedded bliss. Romance, it seems, is alive and well even in later life.
We wish them a wonderful wedding day and more happy times together.
