(Newser) – A nice tale for Valentine's Day courtesy of the Charlotte Observer: Larry Bushnell, 85, will marry Columba Rosaly, 97, this weekend, and the wedding is unusual not just because of their ages: Turns out they don't speak the same language. Rosaly is from Ecuador and speaks only Spanish, and Bushnell speaks only English.
