Do you remember your first love? Unless you are still with them, it most likely ended in heartache. One couple knows this feeling all too well.
Janice and Prentiss met in college in 1961 and immediately fell in love. Just as with most college loves, their relationship was developing fast and with lot of passion. They just knew they’re meant to be from the very beginning and soon they got engaged.
But Janice’s father had other plans for her. He forbid the two from seeing each other or he would cut off her tuition and that’s how their relationship ended. They continued their lives, they both married other people and created their careers and families. All that time they never lost the love for each other tho.
Years later, Tom found the newspaper clipping from their engagement in his mother’s belongings. Janice found the same clipping in her mother’s things. They both kept it. Unlike Janice’s father, their mothers knew they should be together. This was a beautiful, clear sign they were meant for each other.
Decades after they parted, they ran into each other and the rest is history. They never stopped thinking about or loving each other. Now both age 71, 50 years after they met, they finally got married. Like the famous saying goes, “It’s better late than never!” They weren’t wasting any more years, they are going to make the most of their time together.
“We are so happy. Our marriage is perfect. Of course we have few years to live it, but it will be perfect,” Janice explains of their new life together.
