John and Phylis Cook from the Ohio state went to get their marriage license last week at a courthouse and discovered they could get married on immediately.
According to an interview with CNN John said “It wasn’t the plan, but we got here and they said, ‘we could marry you here.’ I said ‘good, let’s get it over with it.”
The old couple said that it wasn’t a rushed decision for them since they had been in a relationship for a year before getting married. Mr. Cook added that they were very compatible in many different ways and enjoyed each other’s company a lot.
John is 100 years old while Phylis will be turning 103 years in August. They spend most of their time enjoying meals and sitting in the sun.
