Elderly Couple Recreate Their Wedding On Their 70th Anniversary!
Wang Deyi, 98, and Cao Yuehua, 97, got married 70 years ago in 1945 near the Jialing River in Chongqing, China. For their 70th anniversary, their children helped them recreate their original wedding, as it looked in their wedding photos.
“My dad asked my mom for a dance and they fell in love with each other almost at first sight. That’s it. That’s how my father met my mother,” the couple’s youngest son, 60-year-old Cao Pangpei told CNN in an extended interview
Shortly after having met the love of his life, Cao sent to the frontline in India to be an interpreter for the U.S. Army.
“They can barely remember many things in their life, but they can recite the love poems they wrote to each other during the wartime.”
“They have been with each other for so long and the love never fades. Even in the darkest time during the Cultural Revolution, when my dad was segregated for trial because of his service for the U.S. Army,” their son told CNN.
“We want to help them preserve their memories of the love they’ve shared.”
The lovely couple plan to create the wedding again when they both turn 100.
1 Corinthians 13:4–8 : “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
