Jennie Knapp and Bob Wuensch were reunited in marriage today, exactly 41 years after their first wedding. They were first married while they were in the Navy on August 15, 1972 and wed for the second time today – on the 41st anniversary of their first marriage! During the 41 years between their two weddings, they got divorced and married other people, but discovered they were always looking for someone who could measure up to their first love! Now, 38 years after divorcing each other, they celebrated a real love story – their coming together again to marry the one they have loved during all those years of separation! They had lost track of each other and lived on different coasts with 3,000 miles separating them, but found each other again through Facebook.
They kept their wedding very simple and intimate, limiting it to ten guests. Afterwards, everyone went to dinner together to celebrate their marriage and to eat wedding cake!
The song, “I Wanna Grow Old With You” expresses their feelings well:
“Oh I could be the one,
Who grows old with you.
I wanna grow old with you.”
May they be blessed with many long and happy years together!
