What can be more beautiful then lasting love – not much comes close honestly. A young woman recently took to Twitter to share a few beautiful black and white pictures of her parents looking all sorts of in love together.
In the touching post, the elderly couple proves that love can last forever as they look at each other with more than a sparkle in their eyes. Celiwe Nsibande, their daughter who uploaded the photos, explains that the pair have been together for a whole 40 years.
“My parents have been together for FORTY years & are still within, it’s frame 2 for me. Manifesting,” she captioned the absolutely stunning pictures.
The candid pictures of the lovebirds got a lot of Twitter folk wondering out loud whether love like that still exists in our modern times. Many of them took to the comments section to compliment the couple as well as hope for a similar lasting relationship.
Here are some of their comments.
“I’m really starting to believe that the existence of social media is the reason why today’s youth can’t replicate this. Men can’t even strive for at least 2 years. Why? Everyone keeps on pressuring & imposing their standards of what it means to date/love on each other.”
“Ask them for the secret ingredient please.”

Meanwhile, Bioreports earlier reported that a video of a couple that has been married for 71 years has become popular for the right reason. With a shaky hand that speaks of many years spent, the man cut into a cake and fed his wife.
After feeding her, he drew her close and planted a kiss on her lips as committed lovers would do on a date.
All the while the man was cutting into the cake, the woman shook her head repeatedly as she giggled happily.
