Brit couple remarry 57-yrs after bitter divorceJanuary 28th, 2011 - 5:48 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 28 (ANI): A British couple has remarried 57-years after they went through a bitter divorce and severed all ties with one another.
Leslie, 93, and Elsie Harper had divorced in 1954, and both married new partners in the 1960s.
But Elsie’s husband Peter Dunn died in 2002, and Leslie was widowed when his wife Muriel died two years later.
The pair got back together after Leslie contacted Elsie, 90, in 2004.
“I couldn’t believe it when he called me. It was wonderful seeing him again, we gelled straight away - like we had never been apart,” the Daily Mail quoted Elsie as saying.
“Just seeing him again made me feel so much younger. It took me back 50 years. We laughed and laughed. I had been so angry with him for so long after we divorced.
“At the time I never wanted to see him again. Pauline, our daughter, kept in touch with both of us obviously, but I didn’t speak to him,” she revealed.
Elsie, a retired seamstress, said Leslie decided to contact their daughter, Pauline Goodson, 65, and ask for her phone number.
“Now things are like they were when we first met, it was like we had never been apart. I don’t think we ever got over each other, I think true love does last forever,” she added. (ANI)
