98-Year-Old Couple Recreate Their Wedding Day After 70 Years

Every wedding anniversary is worthy of celebration, but a 70th anniversary is one that deserves something truly special. Chinese couple Wang Deyi, 98, and Cao Yuehua, 97, were married in 1945 at Northern Hot Springs Park in Chongqing. They had four children who, this year, helped them to recreate the wedding photo from so long ago.

“My parents are 98 this year,” the couple’s youngest son, 60-year-old Cao Pangpei told CNN. “They have been together for so long, going through the war, the political turmoil and diseases, and can still stay with each other and love each other. We want to help them to commemorate their love.”

Cao Yuehua and Wang Deyi got married in 1945

70 years later, they decided to recreate their wedding photos with the help of their 4 children

“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’ve lived through tough times [being separated during the war], but they never stopped loving each other”

“My dad asked my mom for a dance and they fell in love with each other almost at first sight,” said the youngest son

“That’s how my father met my mother”

“We want to help them preserve their memories of the love they’ve shared”

“When we are both 100-years-old, we will come back again, ok?” added the happy wife

Beautiful... I know I will never have that, but nice to know some can... too bad their love can't be multiplied worldwide.
