Elderly Couple Chooses the Grocery Store They Met in for Their Nuptials

Walking down the aisle is a dream come true moment, even if the aisle is at your local grocery store! An elderly couple recently ditched the idea of a traditional wedding and instead got hitched at the grocery store where they first met each other. How romantic!

The Story

The story of Arizona natives Dennis Delgado and Brenda Williams is nothing short of a sweet Hollywood romance! In August 2021, Dennis first spotted Brenda searching through the mayonnaise shelf at Fry’s Food and Drug Store in Casa Grande. The two instantly hit it off and went on to chat for half an hour. After getting to know each other a bit, they swapped phone numbers. It didn’t take long for the pair to plan a second meeting.

The Feelings

Both Dennis and Brenda lost their former partners tragically. They bonded over their shared loss and started to develop feelings for each other. Eventually, they got engaged in April this year, and for hubby-to-be Dennis, it wasn’t hard to find a perfect place to propose to his new would-be wife. It was the same condiment aisle of that grocery store. Finally, their story came full circle recently, when the lovebirds said “I Do” standing at that very grocery store aisle.

The Reason

As Brenda told the reporters, both she and Dennis were aware of the fact that, at the ages of 72 and 78, they probably wouldn’t be left with much time. So, they decided to do something dumb and stupid and go out with a bang! But we think of their decision as incredibly sweet and romantic, and we can’t stop swooning! We hope that Dennis and Brenda’s story will give people hope to find love in their lives, no matter their age. Truly, love could be just around the corner, if you look hard at your local grocery store!

The Timeline for Falling in Love, as Told by Experts

Are you a believer in love at first sight, or do you have a three-to-five-date rule? Or is it all about the right place and right time? Different people have different timelines. Some take months to feel and confess, while others go all out and say the “L” word after one day. Are you here to know how long someone actually takes to feel the butterflies? Here is what experts have to say about it.

The Research

After decades of research and thousands of experiments, experts have a lot to say about how long it takes for people to get weak in their knees. According to a study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, it takes longer for women to fall in love than men. Women take 149 days, while men take 97 days from the day the relationship starts to fall in love. To add to this, the Journal of Gay & Lesbian Social Services declared through a study in 2008 that a homosexual couple, i.e., two women, takes approximately six months to feel their hearts racing.

The Intimacy Factor

Intimacy can play a huge role in making you fall in love. Sounds crazy? Well, it truly does. Indulging in physical activity takes your relationship a step further. You start longing for your partner and can end up feeling strong emotions. You might actually just go ahead and tell your partner that you have fallen hard for them.

The Attachment Style

If you are an anxious person, then you might look forward to the support of your partner. This is why when one partner in a relationship has an anxious attachment style, they tend to fall in love faster than the other one. Not only do they need their partners during bad times, but also when they are super excited about things. If you’re that partner, don’t get scared when you feel too much in too little time.
