99 year-old man marries for the first time

NEW YORK: A 99-year old man has ended his lifelong holdout and tied the knot for the very first time.
Gilbert Herrick met 86-year-old Virginia Hartman, a widow who raised five children, while living at Monroe Community Hospital near Rochester, New York. Something that hadn’t clicked for 98 years finally did.
They tied the knot June 6. Her five children, grandchildren and great grandchildren helped plan. Both are confined to wheelchairs, making their first dance as a couple tricky. They waited for the floor to clear, said Herrick.
