Nursing home newlyweds prove you're never too old for marriage

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - In spite of the recent chilly days, spring must be in the air -- and so is love and marriage, no matter what your age. A Midlands couple is proving that you're never too old for marriage and the love that goes with it.

Doscia Brown and John Inman just want to get married. "I do believe that they have the maturity to get married," said Rev. James Goodwin. "I mean, they have life experience. You know what I mean."

"I love her and she loves me, so that's all that matters," said Inman.

"I am nervous, but I don't know why!" said Brown.

Sounds like a couple of kids jumping in over their heads -- or not. The lovebirds have been married twice before, but their spouses died some time ago. They just love being married and want to be married, so it's going to happen right in the middle of their nursing home dining room.

"You are joining two people together that have found love and find joy in living together," said Goodwin.

"I ride her around in her wheelchair, she's satisfied," said Inman. "I'm going to be good to her."
