A 98-year-old woman named Gertrude Mokotoff and a 94-year-old man named Alvin Mann from Middletown, New York just got married.
And how did they meet? At the GYM.
Back when Gertrude was only 90 and Alvin was 86, they were both working out at the same gym and a mutual friend introduced them. They’re both widowed from previous marriages, and they started dating.
But clearly, even at their ages, they were willing to take their time . . . because it took EIGHT YEARS before they decided to get married. And Gertrude was the one who finally proposed to Alvin.
They say they’re happy to spend the rest of their lives together, and they’re not worried about how much time they have left.
Alvin says, quote, “Age doesn’t mean a damn thing to me or Gert. We don’t see it as a barrier. We still do what we want to do in life.”
