"I kept getting teased about dating a cougar," Alvin told The New York Times, laughing. "But the age difference never really bothered me because we just hit it off, and I wasn't about to let her go."

Alvin and Gertrude dated for eight years before she asked him to marry her.

"I asked him to marry me," she said with a chuckle. "I was tired of chasing after him."

"People always ask what it is that keeps us young," Alvin said. "Of course, one part of it is medical science, but the bigger part is that we live worry-free lives; we do not let anything we cannot control bother us in the least."
