Lennie Gerber and Pearl Berlin fell in love at first sight. They have been together for 50 years, but they waited 47 years for their marriage to be legally recognized.
The couple started their life together in North Carolina, and they say that they couldn’t have picked a better place to live even though same-sex marriage was banned at that time. So they waited, until the day they could get legally wedded in the community they so much love.
Watch the video below and fall in love with Linnie and Pearl.
The couple campaigned for their rights year after year, so being able to have their reunion acknowledged is just amazing. They got married on the same day they celebrated 47 years of love and friendship and couldn’t be happier. Their story is a great reminder that love is simple and pure, just like in this great thought from Woody Allen:
“The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic to these things. You meet someone and you fall in love and that’s that.”
