These elderly couples prove that it's never too late to find love. The reasons for marriage vary, but statistics show that over the last 100+ years, most men get married between the ages of 26 and 28, and women between 22 and 26. When most people think of romance, it is these young couples that they have in mind.

However, senior couples are free from many of the social and economic pressures faced by their younger counterparts. The choice to marry is entirely theirs, they have a good idea of who they are and what they want, and they usually don't have kids, college, or a mortgage to pay for. For these reasons, couples who marry young are more likely to divorce.

So raise your champagne glass and toast old love! Vote for the cutest couple, or if you know an old couple who should be celebrated, post a picture!
