Mar­ried at last – after half a cen­tury

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News - NZ Stuff –

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.
