  • Couple marry after 50-year courtship

    A 101-year-old Italian man is to finally make his 98-year-old girlfriend his bride after a courtship that has spanned more than half a century.

    Giuseppe Rebaudi, a retired gynaecologist, started dating French-born Silvie Basain in 1952 and the happy couple are to marry next month.

    The blushing bride told Ananova: "We just need to get a certificate from the French embassy that I have not been married before and am single."

    The ceremony is to take place at the couple's home in Bordighera, north-west Italy.

    Ms Basain said that her only concern was that she and her soon-to-be husband may be rushing into marriage.

    She said: "We have only been together for 50 years - that may be a bit quick but then again you are only young once."
