In other news about elderly couples finding love, Briefly News previously reported that an elderly couple from the United Kingdom decided to get married after being together for 40 years and with the man in a life-threatening condition.

Keith Turner, 86, and 83-year-old Rita Trickett were assisted by the hospital staff in organising a small wedding after learning that the man had terminal cancer. According to Daily Mirror, Keith's condition got worse, and he was admitted to hospital a week before the nuptials.

The nurses helped get a cake for the event and found a pinhole flower for Keith and a lovely bouquet for Rita. The ceremony took place in a ward, with some of the staff joining the couple to celebrate their big day.
