Valdemira Rodrigues de Oliveira said yes to her ‘toyboy’ Aparecido Dias Jacob, 66, in a stunning ceremony on Saturday [28/01].The pair of smitten seniors, with the combined age of 172 years, held the special engagement after doctors sadly banned their marriage.
Medics assessed their health and age and warned the duo, known affectionately as Valda and Jaco, would not be able to cope with living on their own.
But after three years together, the senior romantics, who have separate rooms at Nossa Senhora Fatima retirement home in Pirassununga, south east Brazil, were determined to prove it’s never too late to be with your soulmate.
