A Walmart employee in Arkansas got a big surprise on Valentine’s Day. Ranet Stumpf, 75, was working as usual, when a man walked in and held up a sign asking her to marry him. The man, Louis Demetriades, 75, wasn’t just any man, he was her ex-husband and expert investor.
According to the couple, they met on an army base in the 1950s. They fell in love and soon got married, but 12 years and 3 children later, they separated, and it seemed they had gone their separate ways. They both remarried and lived happily.
Then, their respective spouses died, and Louis reached out to their daughter on Facebook. That sparked a chance meeting, 43 years after the divorce, between Stumpf and Demetraides. Since December, they’d been seeing each other, and Demetraides figured it was time to give it another shot.
According to the love struck retiree, it was love at first sight, again, and it became obvious the pair never lost their feelings for one another. Despite their ages and history together, Stumpf said they are in no hurry to remarry right away, she’s leaving the timing up to God, just as she did with the chance rekindling of her first love.
