MARRIED couple : finally pose for their wedding photos - 88 YEARS later.
Wu Conghan, 101, and his wife Wu Sognshi, 103, married in 1924 and have been together for almost nine decades.
Cameras were almost unknown in China when they got married, but their new keepsakes are something they have dreamed of having ever since.
Their wish came true after a local photo company offered to help the pair from Nanchong, Sichuan province pose for wedding album shots.
The happy couple dressed in full wedding finery for the snaps - with the blushing bride in a full-length gown and veil - before they looked at their mementoes on a laptiop.
The gesture came as part of an initiative in the city that has seen photographers volunteer to help elderly couples obtain wedding photographs they missed originally.
look at them holding hands. loookkkk

‘Don’t worry about making me come. I’m here. Right where I want to be.
I am overwhelmed by wanting; you don’t have to convince me. I want you because I like you. So don’t put on a front. Don’t taint this.’
‘You will live and die with and within your experiences like everyone else. If someone thinks you are amazing, they are not wrong. Their universe is as real as any other; it is forged through perception.’
‘“Good in bed,” what.
You’re good in my bed. I’m pleased you’re there. I feel it suits you.’
THIS!!!!! TAKE NOTES EVERY FUCKING “GAY RIGHTS ORGANIZATION” WE EXIST. AND MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF EXPOSURE WOULD BE NICE. I’M SO TIRED OF BLACK GAY MEN ONLY BEING IN ADVERTIZEMENTS FOR HIV MEDS. this has been a post.
Marriage Proposal of the Day: In what is believed to be the first proposal of marriage between two gay men — and war vets — on a U.S. military base, Navy vet Cory Huston asked Marine Avarice Guerrero to marry him Tuesday at Camp Pendleton in San Diego. Here’s the story:
Under a bright Southern California sky at Camp Pendleton’s Camp Del Mar near Oceanside, California, a full two hours before his boyfriend’s return from the badlands of Afghanistan, Cory Huston waited nervously. Huston, who was discharged under the former Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, chain smoked as he rehearsed the simple proposal he would deliver when Guerrero would arrive.
Finally, luggage in tow, Guerrero emerged with a smile on his face. Upon seeing Huston, Guerrero dropped his bags; aimed a kiss toward Huston’s lips; and opened his arms to his boyfriends waiting embrace. The time and distance of 10 months’ separation evaporated in a public show of affection that less than a year ago would have been cause for court martial. After a few minutes of emotional holding and kissing, Huston went anxiously down on one knee; looked up at Guerrero, who was dressed from head to toe in military fatigues; and produced an engagement ring and the time-honored phrase, “Will you marry me?”
Huston’s mild tremble, a result of hours and days of anticipation about this day, was quickly quieted by the one word every hopeful fiancé wants to hear: “Yes.”
