Brahmapur, Aug 7:
Proving that it is never too late to enter into wedlock, an elderly couple in Odisha’s Silk City got married here on Thursday.
Unfazed by social norms, the 71-year-old groom–KVR Patnaik– and the 51-year-old bride–K Krishnadevi Patnaik– exchanged garlands and registered their marriage at the local sub-registrar office yesterday in the presence of lawyer T Duryodhan Reddy, neighbours and relatives.
The septuagenarian was single while the woman was a spinster when the duo met. Cupid sturck the elderly couple, who decided to be a support system to each other for the rest of their lives.
