Love is not something that just happens to you. Well, maybe it does for the first few months when everything is new. But inevitably, there comes the time when you have no more stories to tell and reality hits you. Things that you ignored before become increasingly annoying with time and the butterflies of the first dates are no longer there. And that’s the actual start of the relationship.
Those old couples that you see holding hands in a park got to that stage not because they simply met “the one,” they got there because they didn’t give up on each other. They learned to live with little imperfections. They learned to be less self-centered, and they were always up for a new adventure. They laughed more and were angry less. They grew eternal butterflies that see no age limits because true love is forever.
The 25 elderly couples below are some of those lucky ones. Maybe we can learn a thing or two from them!
