Living proof that falling in love has no age limit, a couple with a combined age of 171 married this week and are thought to be amongst Britain’s oldest newlyweds. The happy couple, Dennis Jones 85 and Sophie Scragg 86 met at a day centre five years ago and tied the knot at Wolverhampton Register Office on Tuesday. Proving that chivalry is not dead, Dennis lent his glasses to his new bride so that she could see to sign the register. He described Sophie as a “lovely woman”, saying that he hoped they would enjoy many happy years together. Sophie’s daughter said the couple were perfect together and it was good they could be together and look after one another. However Dennis insisted that he wasn’t marrying Sophie for company but because he loved her. It’s nice to see that love and romance is still alive and well even in this day and age! What a lovely story. Congratulations to both Dennis and Sophie!
