Back in the day, relationships lasted longer thanks to the absence of social media and the constant attention which has become normal with modern life.
A couple that met in the 80s and married just three days later is celebrating 37 years of marriage and boy if this is not relationship goals then tell me what is.
The couple's daughter shared the sweet story via Twitter and social media went crazy with shock and awe.
Only identified as @AfricanPrize, the lady wished her folks the best for their future and praised them for the love and life they had built.
"My parents got married three days after they met. They just celebrated 37 years. Love knows no timeline," she wrote.
The excited woman showed off a photo of her parents back when they were young and all that could be seen in their eyes was unending love.
Of course today such relationships are frowned upon as most people insist on dating for a couple of years before settling into marriage.
Some of her followers thought that was a love story worth celebrating.
Others, however, could not wrap their heads around the thought of getting hitched to a complete stranger.
