90-year-olds marry after years of friendship


Andy Nilles and Gladys Salley of Washington tied the knot Friday at the doughnut shop where they spent many hours together.

They live in the same retirement home, but they didn't start dating until they were introduced by a mutual friend.

The couple says people would comment that they always looked liked the perfect married couple so they decided to prove them right.

"It'll mean when you wake up at night, feeling kind of sad or alone, you can reach over and hold their hand," said Salley.

Nilles admits he didn't get down on one knee to propose. He says he was a bit worried he wouldn't be able to get back up again.
