(NEWSER) - – After 72 years together, two Iowa women have finally said "I do."
"This is a celebration of something that should have happened a very long time ago," said the reverend officiating the Saturday wedding of Vivian Boyack, 91, and Alice "Nonie" Dubes, 90. They met in Yale, Iowa, where they grew up, and spent the next seven decades together traveling the US, Canada, and England, reports the Quad-City Times.
Boyack worked as an elementary teacher and Dubes in payroll at a newspaper, then at a recycling company.
