An 83-year-old woman in Canada who just married for the first time proves it’s never too late for love.

“I always felt that I’d like to be married, up until last April. And last April, I finally gave up. I said, this is ridiculous,” Carol Harris reflected.

However, she got married for the first time to her childhood sweetheart. She and George Raynes met in the first grade, back in 1936, but after high school he moved away, got married and raised three sons.

 When his wife of 61 years passed away, he moved back to New Brunswick and found Harris again. It didn’t take long for him to pop the question.

“Yes! Well, that was my answer,” she said.

Harris said she’s still getting used to the wedding rings on her finger, but she loves sharing her house with someone else—saying her house is now a home.
