They say true love lasts a lifetime, and this elderly couple from China are a demonstration to it. In simple yet extremely romantic move, Mr Wang, 97, presented his wife with a large bunch of roses on Valentine’s Day of 2019 to express his love for her. Mrs Wang, 99, was so happy after receiving the flowers she kept smiling while holding the carefully wrapped bouquet. The couple, from the city of Linyi in Shandong Province, are great-great-grandparents and have been married for many years, according to one of their granddaughters who calls herself Wu Jie. Wu Jie said that she was the couple’s youngest grandchild. She added her grandfather and grandmother got married in 1937 during wartime and never had a wedding ceremony. They were introduced by neighbours, and her grandfather simply went to pick up his bride with a wooden cart pulled by cows. Mr and Mrs Wang have loved each other all their lives and almost never argued. They are now surrounded by a huge family. They have six children, eight grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren. Mr Wang is a shy person, but likes flowers. In order to help him express his emotion, Wu Jie bought a bouquet of roses on her way to her grandparents’ house on Valentine’s Day. Mr Wang took over the flowers, which cost 80 yuan (£9), and immediately gave them to his beloved wife. After witnessing the emotional scene, Wu Jie then decided to arrange a traditional wedding ceremony for her grandparents on the same day. She said she wanted her grandmother to experience the happy feeling of being a bride. Wu Jie said her grandparents had good health and could look after themselves. She said her biggest wish was for them to carry on living their lives happily and healthily.
