  • True Love: Couple Married 67 Years Dies One Day Apart

    Even death couldn't keep Olympia and Michael DeNittis apart. After 67 years of marriage, they passed away within 32 hours of each other; what's more remarkable is that Michael didn't even know his wife had died.

    Olympia lost her battle with pneumonia on February 2nd at JFK Medical Center's Haven Hospice in Edison, NJ, and her family made the difficult decision not to tell Michael, who was suffering from cancer in another hospital just seven miles away. "I saw him in the hospital (and) there was a glimmer of hope we might be able to bring him home," his granddaughter, AnnMarie McDonald, explains to NJ.com.

    However, despite their attempts to shield him from the sad news, it appeared that Michael had a gut feeling something was wrong - he told his relatives he had a dream that he had died the night before and he also asked about his wife's prescription medication.

    "I knew that she knew that he loved his life and wanted to

  • Pro NFL Player Responds to Fan's Wedding Invite

    Zach V. Curley and his bride-to-be, Teresa Daley, haven't sent out most of their invitations for their May wedding yet, but they did contact a few special people in their "A" list: Mickey and Minnie, The Obamas and Robert Griffin III. To their surprise, they actually got a response back in just five days from the Washington Redskins quarterback, who also included a signed autograph (still waiting on Disney and the White House!).

    "Just that somebody as big as RGIII would take the time, right away, to write something back - I thought that was really cool. Obviously I'll be a Redskins fan all my life, but he will be my favorite player from now on, until the end of time," the groom tells The Washington Post.

    Curley decided to pass Griffin's response along to The Post to prove that despite getting a bad rap - the Redskins have received a lot of negative coverage recently - the kind gesture meant a lot to him ("it will be one

  • Why This Proposal Video Inspired a High School Bully to Apologize

    When Lucas Bane's proposal video to his partner of four years, David Devora, went viral, he got one response he certainly wasn't expecting - an apology from someone who tormented him as a teenager for being gay.

    After viewing the video above, where Bane shut down a street in West Hollywood to surprise Devora with a flash mob proposal, the bully - identified as "B" - sent Bane a Facebook message that read:

    "I'm sure you have no idea who I am. I went to high school with you. If you do remember me it's probably not positive as I was a bit of an a**hole back then. I saw your video today on Facebook and wanted to say Congratulations! No need to respond I just wanted you to know that I think what you have is awesome and wish you the best."

    Bane was shocked when he saw who the message was from. "I gasped when I saw the name," he told The Gaily Grind. "When I read the words and his follow-up response, I sobbed. That sounds dramatic, but it's true."

  • Second Chance: Bride Gets a Wedding Re-Do After Suffering Devastating Memory Loss

    Amanda and Cody Karth

    Childhood friends Amanda and Cody Karth, who fell in love years later, spent months planning their dream wedding. But just hours after the celebration, Amanda suffered a devastating medical emergency that completely erased all memories of her wedding day.

    "The one day that every girl dreams of, I don't remember," Amanda revealed to "Inside Edition."

    Just before sunrise the next day, Cody woke up to the sound of his new wife gasping for air. He desperately performed CPR while calling 911. Amanda went into cardiac arrest and had no pulse when the paramedics arrived; the life-saving team shocked back to life and rushed her to the emergency room.

    "Amanda was about as close to death as you're going to get," said Dr. Adam Frank of the NCH Heart Institute in Naples, FL.

    As she lay unconscious for four days, her doctor worried about brain damage. She'd sustained an unusual medical phenomena called Broken Heart Syndrome,

    Kimmy Kirkwood lost the love of her life on January 31, 2012 and although nothing will ever be able to bring him back, she finds solace in reconnecting with him through Facebook posts and photos they had shared. Her boyfriend, Marine Sgt. William Stacey, was killed by an improvised explosive device during a tour in Afghanistan, shortly before he was planning to propose to her.

  • Sofia Vergara Gets a Surprise Bachelorette Party on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'

    Sofia Vergara

    During Modern Family star Sofia Vergara's appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, the talk show host continued her tradition of wedding-related pranks - and this one got a bit more racy than Kaley Cuoco's surprise wedding!

    But first, Vergara addressed the rumors that she's planning not just one but three wedding celebrations.

    "No, but it's been awful because since that news came out, all my family is so excited, and they're already planning outfits! They're like, 'What are we going to do?' 'How are you going to get us there?' And I'm like, it's horrible. I'm disappointed to have to tell them that that is not true. I haven't even planned anything."

    She's facing a dilemma that many brides-to-be can related to - "It's either I do something really big, or I do something really small with Nick and I and my son. And then my mom, and then my cousins, and then it's impossible to do anything," she explained.

  • 7 Steps for Setting a Wedding Date

    Choosing a wedding date is one of the most important planning decisions that you'll have to make as a couple - it will impact every other aspect of your big day. You may have an idea of where you envision yourself walking down the aisle or what you want your cake to look like, but until you decide when you'd like to get married, you can't commit to anything. You might be asking yourself, "How do I pick a date that works for everyone and is still special to me?" or "Where do I even start?"

    For every couple, the process is completely unique and that's part of what makes your wedding date so special to you. I hope that by sharing some planner insight - as well as my experience as a real bride - I can help you find the perfect time to say "I do."

  • The Hottest Travel Trends for Couples

    In the days of yore the traditional American honeymoon meant about a week spent on a mountain or a beach vacation secreted away in the boom boom room. More globally, it was a time for the couple to set up their home and to get to know each other. In Jane Austen's era, well-to-do newlyweds used that time to travel to see relatives who were unable to attend the ceremony.

    These days, the honeymoon is still a time to connect with each other - but in a variety of ways - and it (as with all wedding-related travel) has morphed to reflect a language all its own. Here we dissect the latest terms in the nuptial travel realm.

    1. Mini-Moon
    This is a great solution for those who don't have enough vacation days, are hosting a destination wedding or are choosing to wed somewhere that isn't home and still want a romantic getaway after the nuptial celebration. This quickie vacation is two to three nights and doesn't preclude you from taking a longer, more formal honeymoon later.
