Meet The 100-Year-Old And 103-Year-Old Who Just Got Married!

  • Phyllis and John Cook are 100 and 130 years old respectively. They just decided to marry!
  • They have been dating for a year before the two decide to take it to the courthouse and tie the knot.
  • The two love spending their free time together in each other’s company.


John and Phyllis Cook are newlyweds and are celebrating their marriage together at Ohio senior living center. John is 100 years old and is a World War II veteran. His wife, Phyllis, is turning 103 years old this August. Phyllis’s side of the family has a lot of longevity, as her own mother lived until she was 106!


The couple decided to head to the courthouse and get their marriage licenses. They then learn that they could marry on the spot! “It wasn’t the plan, but we got here and they said, ‘we could marry you here.’ I said ‘good, let’s get it over with,'” John Cook says.

The two had been dating for about a year before they decide to marry. “To tell you the truth, we fell in love with each other. I know you think that maybe a little bit farfetched for somebody our age, but we fell in love with each other,” Phyllis says.

The two had both lost previous spouses in the past and just felt lucky to have one another. “We were just compatible in a whole lot of ways, found ourselves enjoying each other’s company,” John explains.

The couple plans to keep busy and keep enjoying their time together for the time that they have left. What a beautiful couple! Take a look at the video below for more information on their story together.
