All The More Reason


We're a few weeks from Valentine's Day, but this sweet love story is too good to wait until then. The New York Times ran the wedding announcement of Ada Bryant and Robert Haire this weekend, who are 97 and 86 respectively. They met in a retirement home, going on lunch dates until Robert slipped a sonnet under Ada's door vowing his "friendship and affection." Their whole story is worth reading, but my favorite part is Ada's demure refusal of Robert's first proposal because she's a bit older than him and doesn't "have very many years ahead" of her. Robert's response? "That's all the more reason."
