I saw an episode of "Doc Martin" where that was happening to some guy. Interesting to have confirmation that it is a real thing.

Kanye West wants to run for President in 2024, and maybe change his name too

That was your reaction to that story? Really? I don't see anything particularly weird about that story at all. Sure, the age difference is a bit large, but when they are both senior citizens does that really matter? Especially since he seemed to be in better health than her when they met.

From the man's point of view, who in the hell would even bother to get married at age 90? He wasn't supposed to be alive then. If I even make it to 75, I'll be fully prepared to kick off. I certainly won't be thinking about women.

Besides that, a lot of younger women marry old geezers like that because they're befuddled and have money. Marriages like that should always be viewed skeptically.

Yeah, I know. Everybody has an uncle who is 92 and still a wizard at chess. That doesn't mean this was a good idea, any more than people who are over 70 and still clinging to political office is a good idea.

Unlike you, I don't pretend to know exactly what I'll be thinking when I reach that age. I do in fact HOPE to be married at that age, though, to the same person I'm married to now, and not just out of sheer inertia, but because I love her. Since I'm convinced that someone that age can still feel genuine love for somebody, and want to BE married to them, I'm not prepared to state, categorically, that somebody that age couldn't fall in love and want to GET married.

I grant that skepticism can be warranted, but I didn't see anything in that story that would feed that level of skepticism, so absent any compelling evidence of gold-digging and shady motives, I'm not willing to assume them.

Perhaps I'm just more optimistic than you when it comes to people's ability to love at any age.

When he dies, you can expect a court fight over his estate, because the old fool will probably leave every penny to her.

Agreed. And it really doesn't have to be anything sexual. Some people just can't live alone. I have some family who are like that. My uncle was married for years and when his wife died he was married again within a year. I have a great uncle like that too. I don't imagine they'll feel differently when they're 90 if they still have their faculties. If anything, companionship might become more critical to a person at that age.

That's not the point, guys. She's after the old goat's money. And you've seen that movie many times.

I'm not blaming the victim, but there's really no need to carry large amounts of cash any more. I rarely keep more than $20 on me.

Well since the banner for World News Daily Report actually says “Where facts don’t matter,” I’m going to go ahead and call actual fake news on that one.

Ends well, but I wasn't sure if it counted as "Better Side" per se:

Daughter's 911 call for pizza was actually a domestic violence report. The dispatcher knew.

Shit, now I REALLY want to buy a cocaine T-shirt off eBay (seriously, search "cocaine shirt" and you'll get a kick out of some of the results).
