After 67 years of marriage husband tells wife he loves her for the first time with a grand gesture
After nearly seven decades of marriage, one would think that couples would run out of surprises for each other for events like Valentine's Day. However, one husband still had one trump card left to play.
He could say "I love you" for the first time.
Amazingly (or "appallingly" as some might say), 84 year old Qiao Dewei never once told his wife, Liu Shixiu (83) that he loved her during their 67 years together as husband and wife. However for Valentine's Day this year, he decided he was finally ready to tell the woman that he's been married to since he was 17, that he loved her.
Of course Dewei isn't simple. He knew that since he waited this long, he needed to deliver the message with a grand gesture and there are few gestures as grand as the one in the below images.
According to Sina, he had the The Grand Metropolitan Hotel in Hangzhou, China light up down the front with the message "I <3 You"
Nice work, Dewei. Although we can't help but feel that you've left yourself a hell of a job in trying to top that next year.
