A 98-year-old couple from southwest China recently celebrated their anniversary by recreating their wedding day photos from 70 years ago. Cao Yuehua and Wang Devi returned to Chongqing's Northern Hot Springs Park on Nov. 24, where they first wed in 1945. After so many years of marriage, you have to be creative with anniversaries, just like the couple that recreated Up for their 60th anniversary. Their son explained why they wanted to do something special for their 70th:
They have been together for so long, going through the war, the political turmoil and diseases, and can still stay with each other and love each other. We want to help them to commemorate their love.
Wang and Cao met in 1943 in Kunming, Yunnan Province, at a ball which was organized by staff and students of China's most prestigious universities, who luckily evacuated from enemy-occupied areas during World War II. They met at a dance! That's how you landed a boo back in the day. And before text messages with emojis, you had to write love poems by hand:
Nowadays, they can barely remember many things in their life, but they can recite the love poems they wrote to each other during the wartime.
If anyone who recently got married tries to recreate their wedding photos in 70 years, they're going to have a tough time getting their nearly 100-year-old bridesmaids to simultaneously jump in the air. Hopefully after that many years, brides realize it's also not cool to ask your friends to spend hundreds of dollars on a matching dress they'll only wear once.
