A man was reunited with his long lost love, and he made sure to never lose her again.

90-year-old Bob Albright and 86-year-old Martha Joy Brindle first fell in love 70 years ago.

But they lost touch after the army sent Albright overseas during World War II.

After Albright told his story to a local magazine, the reporter tracked Brindle down.

Albright didn’t waste any time after seeing her again.

He asked her to marry him one month after their reunion.

The wedding was Wednesday in Indianapolis.
