John and Phyllis Cook met at the Kingston Residence of Sylvania and dated for about a year before they went to get their marriage license on Wednesday.

They ended up just having their wedding right there.

"It wasn't the plan, but we got here and they said we could marry you here. I said 'good, let's get it over with!'," John told WNWO-TV.

John is a World War II veteran that recently turned 100. Phyllis, originally from West Virginia, will turn 103 on August 8th, which is still three years shy of how old her mother lived to be.

"To tell you the truth, we fell in love with each other. I know you think that may be a little bit farfetched for somebody our age, but we fell in love with each other," Phyllis said.

"Well, we were just compatible in a whole lot of ways, found ourselves enjoying each other's company," added John.
