This is the story of a newly-married couple John and Phyllis Cook, now celebrating their new lives together at their Ohio senior living facility.
Love knows no bounds. It is true that it is one of the most amazing feelings one could ever experience in their lifetime. Sure everybody falls in love at a certain age -- maybe high school, or even college. Basically long story short, you could meet the love of your life anytime even when you are over 100 years old. Too good to be true yeah?

It wasn't a decision that they just made up on the spot-- the star couple had been dating for over a year. "To tell you the truth, we fell in love with each other. I know you think that may be a little bit farfetched for somebody our age, but we fell in love with each other," Phyllis Cook told the media outlet.
John is a World War II veteran who recently turned 100 while Phyllis who hails from West Virginia, turns 103 on August 8. Interestingly, she will be only three years shy from turning out how old her mother lived to be. Both of them had been married twice in the past but they now consider themselves to be lucky for falling in love a third time.
So you must be wondering how do they spend their time together? Well, the Cooks enjoy each other's company in the assisted living facility, while munching over meals or just sitting out in the sun and relaxing. But they also value each other's space, which is important for every relationship.
Phyllis said, “What we do, we keep both of our apartments. He’s upstairs and I’m down.” Meanwhile, when John was asked by WWLP regarding what he enjoys the most doing with Phyllis, he replied: “Well, I probably shouldn’t talk about that.”
