Barbara Schultze met the love of her life at 70 years young. His name is Jean-Francois Ramos, he’s 75 and they met on a dating website. He did the whole down-on-one-knee thing and asked her to marry him…in front of her whole family (which looks to be a lot).
Why did she wait ‘til 70? Because she wasn’t willing to be with the wrong person for the sake of a marriage. She said, “You can be far lonelier in a marriage that isn’t working”. It had to be the right person.
Her parents were at the wedding – her dad, 92, and her mum, 93, who really don’t look their age. Oh, and they’ve been married for 71 years. 71 years. That’s great news in itself!
Did you see the look on Jean-Francois’ face when Barbara’s dad offered some marital advice by saying, “don’t let the romance die”?!!! It’s almost like Jean-Francois was thinking, “oh oh, didn’t know I had to do that”. It was probably just coincidence.
Here’s wishing Barbara and Jean-Francois spend the rest of their lives together in totally loved-up wedded bliss.
