Chinese Couple Recreates Wedding Photos After 70 Years of Marriage

Cao Yuehua and Wang Deyi, both 98, have been married for 70 years. On special anniversaries, they go back to the places they visited from when they were young to recreate old photographs, according to the Shanghaiist.

During World War II, the couple fled from their home in Shanghai to Chongqing, over 1,000 miles away. There, they enlisted as soldiers to fight the Japanese.

Cao was sent to Burma. He would write love letters to Wang when he could.


When the couple finally reunited, they married on November 24, 1945 at the age of 28.

Seventy years later, they return to the park in Chongqing where they married.

At the end of their anniversary ceremony, Wang reportedly took her husband’s hand and asked, “When we are both 100 years old, we will come back again, okay?”
