98-Year-Old Marries 94-Year-Old After Meeting At The Gym

On Aug. 5 Gertrude Mokotoff, 98, and Alvin Mann, 94, tied the knot after meeting at the gym where they still work out twice a week.

"I kept getting teased about dating a cougar," Alvin told The New York Times, laughing. "But the age difference never really bothered me because we just hit it off, and I wasn't about to let her go."

Alvin and Gertrude dated for eight years before she asked him to marry her.


"I asked him to marry me," she said with a chuckle. "I was tired of chasing after him."

"People always ask what it is that keeps us young," Alvin said. "Of course, one part of it is medical science, but the bigger part is that we live worry-free lives; we do not let anything we cannot control bother us in the least."

Glad to see so late in life they have found each other... Laughing
