98-Year-Old Marries 94-Year-Old After Meeting At The Gym

98-Year-Old Marries 94-Year-Old After Meeting At The Gym

Earlier this month, Gertrude Mokotoff and Alvin Mann tied the knot after meeting at the gym where they both work out twice a week.

Their first date was at a local restaurant, and they’ve been together ever since. Mokotoff asked Mann to marry her — “I was tired of chasing after him,” she told The New York Times – and they tied the knot on August 5 in front of their friends and family. “I kept getting teased about dating a cougar,” Mann said. “But the age difference never really bothered me because we just hit it off, and I wasn’t about to let her go.”

It’s been a momentous few years for Mann — in 2016, he received his bachelor’s degree in history from Mount St. Mary College in Newburgh, N.Y. — and the World War II veteran and retired businessman said he and his wife, a former biology professor and the first female mayor of Middletown, aren’t going to slow down. “Age doesn’t mean a damn thing to me or to Gert,” he told the Times. “We don’t see it as a barrier. We still do what we want to do in life.”
