Meet the lovebirds: John, 100, and Phyllis, 102.

After getting a marriage license from the courthouse, they were told it’s possible to marry them on the spot and so they went for it.

In a CNN feature, John, who is a World War II veteran, shared, “It wasn’t the plan, but we got here and they said, ‘we could marry you here.'”

So that’s exactly what they did.
