The couple of China, met at their nursing home, where they fell in love and decided to get married.

The woman is no youngster, she is 113 years old, but her mind is sharp and she can stand on her own two feet.

The feisty woman, Azatihan Sawuti, met the 70-year-old man in the nursing home, and began her romance by giving him her portions of food until the two fell in love.

The 70-year-old man, Aimti Ahmeti, decided to propose to Sawuti, but she initially rejected the proposal because she felt ashamed to get married at such an old age.

However, after discussing it, she changed her mind and accepted his second proposal. The two got married during a ceremony in Bachu County, in the western province of Xinjiang.

A number of close friends from their nursing home attended the wedding.

After the wedding, the groom said: “We are very happy together. I do not care that she is much older than me.
She takes good care of me, giving me her portion of meat during meals.” May they live happily ever after.
