Elderly Couple Gets Married 70 Years After Meeting on the School Bus in 1947
Jim and Janice Chatlin reconnected in their old age.
This romance was nearly a century in the making – and earlier this week, the Wisconsin couple finally got their happily ever after.
“I feel 21,” said groom Jim Catlin, 88.
He and his bride, Janice Catlin, 86, tied the knot Thursday in a Stevens Point courthouse among their friends and family before being whisked away in a pedicab that took them on a tour around town.
“Couldn’t be better,” Janice told WSAW.
Jim added, “We waited a while.”
The first time the newlyweds met was on a school bus in 1947, when they were both just kids.
They reconnected in their old age and began seeing each other nearly every single day for nearly a year.
“I knew him right away when I first saw him,” Janice said.
Months after the fateful reunion, they decided to get married.
"It's just her and we just want to stay together,” Jim said.
