George Kirby and Doreen Luckie have been together for 27 years. They are also about to become the world’s oldest newlyweds when they tie the knot in the summer, having a combined age of 194.
George, who is 103 and his sweetheart Doreen, 91, are getting married on July 13th in Eastbourne, East Sussex, and have seven children and 15 grandchildren between them, so no wonder a wedding had to wait given how expensive Christmas and birthdays must be!
George was not only in the RAF, but was also a pretty good boxer in his time, winning all of the 60 fights he entered during his career and joked that he and Doreen had been living in sin for 27 years.
I suppose it’s about time, really. I definitely don’t feel my age – Doreen keeps me young.
I didn’t get down on one knee, because I don’t think I would have been able to get back up.
George is finally set to make an honest woman out of Doreen and we say good luck to them.
