An old couple from Nyeri County East Africa, Kenya, tied the knots on Saturday, December 23, 2017 after dating for 67 years.

The groom identified as Jackson Muriuki, 94, and his bride, Agnes Ajeri, 91, finally walked down the aisle after a love affair which started in 1954.

Muriuki took his bride Agnes in his arms as he walked down the aisle on crutches while she held on to a stick.

Standard Media reports that the couple have stayed together since they met in 1954 and even have 13 children together without formally tying the knot.

The groom described the holy matrimony as the best experience of his life.

“It is such a joy to experience something that I haven’t before and we did this so that we can be closer to God,” he said.

His wife, Agnes, simply said she was happy.

“Happiness, happiness, more happiness,” she said, beaming with excitement.
