Robert was 21, Nora was 17. They met on a blind date in 1942. The date must have went horribly because Nora swore that she would never go out with Robert again. Robert, not taking "no" for an answer, persisted until Nora agreed to a second date.

Robert must've really made an impression on the second date as he and Nora eventually ended up eloping to Missouri to get married as Nora was too young to be legally married in Illinois. And the rest is history.

This is what true love and marriage are all about. My great grandparents were married for 60 years. She was 11 years older than him. She passed first. He passed a year later.

Couples like this should set an example for everyone else who decides to get married. Marriage should be for life, forever, until death do them part.

Good for them , may they enjoy their journey through the stars together

Marriage should be for life, forever, until death do them part.

That is very much dependent on the individuals involved .
Marriage without love or respect is worse than prison without parole

This happens more times than we realize.

It's good that one won't go through a long painful period of missing the other but to be the second to go would be worse IMO. A few hours of immense pain and missing more so than the first.

But still glad that period was only hours instead of days or even years.
