Couple marries after six decades together

Lin Chen has been with her new groom Chen Chin-yin since 1944, after losing her husband in the war. But still, they never married because they saw no need to, one grandson said. Over the next six decades, the two raised 9 children together. It was not until two years ago that this story came to light to their family. When this happened, the grandchildren sought to have their grandparents legally married.

Chen, now a 102-year-old grandfather, was asked if he thought his new bride was especially beautiful today. "She is beautiful every day," he replied. At a traditional wedding ceremony, in the presence of their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, he put a gold ring on her finger.

Lin, the 92-year-old bride said she was being played with by her grandchildren. Despite a strong typhoon hitting Taiwan, she had no qualms about holding the ceremony as planned. "Marriage is like the typhoon weather, with wind and rain. People can get through it as long as they are of one heart," she said.
