Married at last – after half a century
It was a wedding more than half a century in the making.
Barbara Cotton and Curtis Brewer were high school sweethearts in 1961, celebrating together all the milestones of youth.
“He was very handsome, tall, fun,” Cotton told Inside Edition.
The couple lost contact after graduating from their Connecticut school, with Brewer heading off to college and eventually living in Florida, and Cotton remaining in town to take care of her five brothers after her mother’s death.
Last July the pair was given another shot together when Cotton spotted Brewer on Classmates.com.
The couple, now both in their 70s, picked up right where they left off, dating for six months before deciding to marry.
