They got hitched while still in their teens, divorced 20 years later and are getting remarried after nearly a half-century apart.

For Lena Henderson and Roland Davis, the second time around is finally here, even if they’re both 85.

The Buffalo-area couple got married again on Aug. 4, with four generations of their family on hand to see it happen.

The couple tells The Buffalo News they met as teenagers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and after marrying had four children together. They divorced in 1964 but always kept in touch.

Henderson moved to West Seneca 30 years ago. Davis, a military retiree, was living alone in Colorado after his previous wife died several months ago. During a telephone conversation with Henderson, he proposed to her, and she said yes.

他們在還是十幾歲的青少年時共結連理,二十年後離婚,然後在分開將近半世紀後破鏡重圓。

對雷娜.漢德森與隆納德.戴維斯而言,即便兩人皆已高齡八十五歲,他們終於要結第二次婚了。

這對來自(紐約州)水牛城地區的夫妻八月四日再次攜手步上紅毯,屆時會有四代家人出席觀禮。

這對夫妻告訴水牛城新聞報說,他們在還是青少年時相識於田納西州查塔努加,婚後育有四名子女。兩人在一九六四年離婚,但一直保持聯繫。

女方韓德森三十年前搬到(紐約州)西森斯卡,從軍中退役的男方戴維斯在妻子數月前過世後,獨居於科羅拉多州。他在與韓德森通電話時向她求婚,獲得女方的首肯。
