Frédéric Beigbeder, one of the most famous writers of our time, published a widely-known book entitled, Love Lasts Three Years in 1997. It subscribed to the theory that the feeling of love is connected with hormones that have an expiration date. This book earned many fans and followers, especially among youngsters, who strongly believed in this sentiment and had lost any hope of meeting the one true love they had read about in fairy-tales. However, there are many couples around the world who disprove this theory by their own example — they haven’t lost that spark that ignited on the first day of their meeting even after 50 or more years.
Bright Side decided to finally bust this myth and show you some couples that have proven love can last even through senility. Just look at how lively these people are! At the end of the article, there is a bonus photo featuring a celebrity couple that has been together for a quarter of a century.
