How many times have we heard that "age is only a number" or that "love has no age"?

Certainly many times! However, when the years between two individuals that form a couple are really a lot, then one cannot remain completely indifferent.

The world is full of stories that speak of very unlikely and unique marriages, and one of them is undoubtedly the one between Gary Hardwick and Almeda Errell, both residing in Maryville, Tennessee.

The peculiarity of this couple lies in the fact that he is just 19 years old while she is 72, practically over half a century of difference in age.

The two met by chance at a party and there was an immediate and strong attraction, mutually shared and reciprocated, that took place between them.

From that evening, they met practically every day for the next two weeks, and this was enough to convince the young man that he had found his soul mate.

After just 14 days of dating, Gary asked Almeda to marry him, convinced that she was indeed the right one.

For her part, she immediately showed herself just as enthusiastic and ready as ever to spend the rest of her life with the man of her dreams.
