High School Sweethearts reunite and marry 50 years later

Alice Martin and Edward Christopher from Pennsylvania were high school sweethearts in the the 60’s and on this Valentine’s Day weekend they are finally saying “I do”, a wedding 50 years in the making.

The couple dated back in the late 1960s until he joined the Navy. They each went separate ways and married other people, but both of their spouses have since passed away.

That’s when Edward got some news about Alice last fall and he decided to try and get in touch again after 50 years.

“A friend of mine told me that she was sick, and I was just curious. My wife died, so I was just curious to see what she was doing,” said Edward. I think it was in October that he came to my door, knocking on my door, looking her up and she was in a senior living center. She had a few health problems, so he called her up, went down there, and ever since it’s been a go,” said Phillips.

“It’s something you would never think would happen again, something you dream about where after 50 years how getting back together, childhood sweethearts again,” said Edward. “Now we’re getting married, so that’s the way it is.”

The couple is a living reminder that true love is never really lost, and that’s the advice they offer to people still looking for love this Valentine’s Day.

After Fifty Living™ was founded by Jo-Anne Lema, a genuine Boomer and member of the 50+ generation. As she likes to say, “Our enormous generation is charting new territory – we’re healthier, better educated, and more financially fit than any other generation at this time. And, as we march through history, 110 million strong – unique, new issues are developing. It’s exciting to be a part of the development and growth of AfterFiftyLiving.com. This is a historic solution for a historic generation.”

Jo-Anne spent many years in the financial and operations side of higher education after having received a doctorate in education management and administration from Harvard, and an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. Launching out on her own, though, has been the fulfillment of a life dream. Jo-Anne believes that “AfterFiftyLiving™ will delight its visitors, catalyze its partners, and will significantly benefit those who engage it.”

Residing in New England along with her husband of 35+ years, she never ceases to brag about her two children and 4 grandkids!
