John, a veteran of World War II who will turn 100 on August 8, and Phyllis, a native of West Virginia, have been dating for a year. Phyllis, a devout Christian, believed that marriage was the natural next step in their relationship. They went to the courthouse to get a marriage license.
They weren’t planning on getting married that day; they were simply seeking a marriage license, but at the courthouse, John and Phyllis were told they could get married right away. Yes, John said. They spent their honeymoon at the Kingston Residence as the “it” couple.
