... Couple reunite after 41 years Couple reunite after 41 years

28 November 2007

A couple from Australia have married 41 years after they got a divorce.

Mervyn and Barbara Cronin were joined by their four children for the celebrations, along with grandchildren and great-grandchildren

The 68-year-old pair first married in 1957, a marriage that lasted eight years.

Both married again in the intervening years, Barbara eventually being widowed and Mervyn divorcing.

They were reunited in 2005 and realised that their feelings had not faded with time.

Mervyn told the Blacktown Sun: "I'd lived on my own for most of my life and I was pretty set in my ways."

He went on to say that getting back with Barbara has made him one of the luckiest men in alive.

Barbara said of their first marriage: "It was hard in the beginning, because we were only young when we first got married."

The pair is determined to make their relationship work this second time round, much to the delight of their now extensive family.ADNFCR-1043-ID-18373925-ADNFCR
