I Love to See Old Married Couples Hold Hands

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 23,625 People

    Somehow this is one of the most beautiful

    and amazing things in the whole world. People who care so much about one another and who have made it through all the trials and tribulations in their lives (because we all have them) and still treasure each other. What could be more wonderful than the depth of emotion, the...

    it's getting easier and easier the older we get.

    i've found going deaf to be the best way for us old folks to stay together and hold hands longer. now, when i say something stupid and she says, "what?" i get to rethink that thought and change it so it wasn't the first thing that came to mind, which was never right before...

    It's just the cutest thing ever!

    I just stop what I'm doing and go "aww!", whenever I see an old couple holding hands. :)

    A long time ago,there was a man

    that I had such a good chemistry with. We would hold hands,and walk for seriously 8 miles, and not let go. Are hands would be cramped,but we would just barely move our fingers. There was such a strong physical attraction from day one. We started out just being walking friends...

    Several times a week I see an older couple

    travelling around town. It's simply the sweetest and most inspiring thing to witness. They help each other on and off the bus. Hold hands while walking. I have never seen one without the other. Both are completely in tuned and focused on each other. Sad that it's such a rare...

    I saw a couple like that today.

    They were both about 80 and they held hands like teenagers. Love doesn't know the concept of time and the heart doesn't get old. Someone has said that we mature with damage, not with the years passing by - maybe that's why people who love and are loved stay forever young... true...

    I once heard a story

    that I so wanted to have happen in my life, and to share with a special woman, but I never met the woman and I am afraid I am broken so the story will probably never ben mine as well. There was an old couple, in fact it was one of the Marx brothers, Zippo, he was quite a ladies...

    hold hands, and live for and love one another. This is the ideal way to life. I know there are some people in my neighborhood that I am very proud of, the way they love one another makes me ponder... Why can't the rest of the world be like this beautiful couple? They seem so...

    things all by myself. At 26, I discovered that I wanted to share my life with my better half. How beautiful it is to have a family of my own. It took me years to understand the real meaning of love as I picture out those old lovely couples who made it through the test of time...

    Two hands are joined together

    and you can see straight past the brown spots of age, along the blue and purpled veins just under the surface that carry the frailty of long life , beneath the now almost translucent, fragile skin that prove their test of time by the love they hold inside of their hands clasped...

    Heck, they don't even have to be married

    as long as they love each other and care. I saw an older couple walking in Los Angeles a couple of days ago, everybody had to walk around them, I admired seeing that and really wished I had someone like that in my life. It was a beautiful thing.

    How Wonderful to See

    who still hold each others hands tightly? Like they wouldnt want to let go of each other? I saw one when i was on my way home, sitting on the bus. And suddenly the scenario infront me made me feel a little bit envy. They seem so pretty much still inlove with each other with way...

    I really love old people,

    especially couples. I think they're cute, and they make me smile super big. Sometimes I don't mind the thought of growing old, because I have a feeling I've met the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.
