This Real Life ‘Notebook’ Couple Is Living Proof That True Love Is Indeed Forever

“I want you. I want all of you, forever. You and me, everyday.”
When Ryan Gosling said these words to Rachel McAdams in ‘The Notebook’, all our hearts skipped a beat. The line had so much emotion, such intense passion that we knew he meant every word of it. In fact, the entire movie was a masterpiece of romantic storytelling which left our hearts in a beautifully shattered mess.
But that was fiction.

The Facebook page, ‘Love What Matters‘ recently shared the heartwarming story of a real life ‘Notebook’ couple who are about to celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary.

Their story will make your heart melt:

“As I was sitting eating my double cheeseburger at Wendy’s, I glanced over at this older couple, and thought ‘That’s sweet’ And continued with my meal. But when I looked again, in between bites, I saw this gentleman feeding his wife. My whole life I’ve yearned for a love that strong. The gentleman got up from his seat to throw his food away and I couldn’t resist asking how long he and his wife had been married. He looked at me and asked me to guess his age but not to guess too low. After a few guesses, he told me he was 96 and his wife is 93 who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. This is their date night. He also told me that if they make it till June, they will be celebrating 75 years of marriage!
Getting all the way to the end of the line with the person you started out with is one of the most glorious things on the face of this earth. Could a couple be more blessed than to have that happen? To share a deep love and bond that only grows as we age, that is a beautiful thing.”

The story certainly proves one thing. Happily ever after forever is not just a thing of fantasy. It’s very much real. It happens when you’re truly in love.
“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more; that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”
