Can\’t snark this: Wuhan couple married for 75 years pass away within 15 hours of each other

With some of the stories coming out of China about love and marriage these days, it’s easy to become cynical about this topic. You may now take the next 5 minutes to be a softie. A Wuhan couple in their 90s and who have been married for 75 years passed away within 15 hours of each other at the end of October, Wuhan Evening News reports.

The man, 92 and his wife, 93, left six children — the oldest being 75 — and 15 grandchildren behind. The two, who met in an arranged marriage, were described to have had a respectful and happy marriage. In what is an epic case of over-achievement, not only did the two manage to bring up their children through the most tumultuous years in recent Chinese history, send them to school and survive the decades immediately post-1949, they also managed to bring up 12 of their 15 grand kids.
