How long does true love last?

People can have their own answers but none of it can be considered true until we get there. While we are sometimes discouraged whenever we see people fall out of love, the same inspiration can be taken from those who endured the years.

And even those who are together for a long time don’t necessarily mean that they’re still sweet and sappy for each other. But there are those, that even after 72 years of marriage, they’ll find a way to make each other’s hearts flutter.

TikTok user @dudfam shared a heartwarming video of her grandparents, Faye and Kenneth Babin.

The minute-and-a-half video showed his grandfather shuffling toward her grandmother who was already in a wheelchair. Years have definitely left a mark on them but their love remained unchanged.

“Baby!” her grandfather exclaimed which made her grandmother a bit nervous about the sudden ruckus. She watched the older man make his way toward her, not expecting the surprise he has for her.

Old and shaky, her grandfather knelt down on one knee.

“Will you be my Valentine?” the older man asked his wife as he offered a bar of chocolate and a card. He may be old but he never lost his touch when it comes to sweet gestures. Men should take notes!

Then, in a heart-melting response, their grandmother just said “I have always been your Valentine.” With a big hug for her man.

She then set aside the bar of chocolates so she could read what he wrote on the card.

“My wife, my friend, my Valentine,” she read the card, “Baby you are my one and only Valentine. Each day of my life is filled with happiness because you are a part of it.”

Love truly knows no age because this couple just proved that no matter how long or difficult, you can make your love work if you stay committed to each other.

TikTok users gushed at how the couple showed their love.

“I wish I can see them when they were in love at the early age it seems it was massive if he can manage to kneel down at that age,” said one user.

“Those that get to experience this kind of love in their lifetime are so blessed.” Said another commenter.

TikTok user @dudfam’s account is also filled with snippets of the couple’s life.

In one video, their grandfather casually walks toward their grandmother who was sitting by the couch. They hugged and kissed like it was something they do daily. Every interaction they have is always punctuated with a kiss.
