Fairy Tale Love Story: Engaged To High-School Sweetheart After 40 Years Apart
On 8 May this year, Marilyn announced that she was engaged to her high-school sweetheart and prom date, Jim. Apparently, forty years before becoming her fiance and then husband, Jim took Marilyn on a high-school prom date.
After that, due to varying circumstances, the couple lost touch. Fast forward forty years: Marilyn and Jim meet again and reconnect, and as if nothing had changed become fiances, then husband and wife.

As a perfect conclusion to the star-crossed love story, they got married about a month after being engaged on 21 June in a spectacular wedding.
Who could have thought that Jim and Marilyn would find their way to each other after forty years, let alone become husband and wife in their sixties? But they did, as unbelievable as that might sound.
It seems as if the star-crossed love stories exist even in real life!
