Being 95-years-old and stuck in a pandemic was nothing for John Shults, because that is when he met the love of his life! John met and married Joy Morrow-Nulton, who is also 95 years young and together they're proving you're never too old to make a lifetime commitment. 

CBS News first met the couple in March, along the banks of the Hudson River in upstate New York.

Shults and Morrow-Nulton have both been widowed twice but were determined to find love again, which was harder than you think. Before they were vaccinated, they had to do most of their dating in a bubble. 

"She was worth it. It was a pain in the neck, though," Shults said of maintaining the relationship through the pandemic. 

Shults' son Pete said the two would call each other every day. "They'd find a way to get together. They did whatever it took."

What it took, they say, was a return to simple pleasures, like long drives to nowhere, batting balloons around the house and a lot of selflessness. 

"She's richer than I am, just so you know. She bought me a walker," Shults said. "$159, I think. I told you she had money. She did have it until she bought my walker." 

John was so head over heels for Joy that he just had to propose and he did so a dozen times before Morrow-Nulton said yes. "Finally I said, OK," she said, adding that she finally accepted the proposal "when we had snow days and I didn't come up here, I missed him." 

They recently had a small ceremony and got married, love sure does work in mysterious ways.
