"As I was sitting eating my double cheeseburger at Wendy's, I glanced over at this older couple, and thought 'That's sweet' and continued with my meal," the Facebook user wrote. "But when I looked again, in between bites, I saw this gentleman feeding his wife. My whole life I've yearned for a love that strong."

"The gentleman got up from his seat to throw his food away and I couldn't resist asking how long he and his wife had been married. He looked at me and asked me to guess his age but not to guess too low. After a few guesses he told me he was 96 and his wife is 93 who is suffering from Alzheimer's. This is their date night. He also told me that if they make it till June, they will be celebrating 75 years of marriage!"

Since being posted, the picture has gotten more than 141,000 likes and nearly 5,000 comments from users touched by the man's love for his wife.

"Getting all the way to the end of the line with the person you started out with is one of the most glorious things on the face of this earth," the poster added. "Could a couple be more blessed than to have that happen? To share a deep love and bond that only grows as we age, that is a beautiful thing."
