It is always a joyous occasion when two persons come together in a marital union. But is more joy when the union is between two old people who married and separated for years.

That was the joy guests felt as they attended the wedding of an 81-year-old man, Joseph Thomas Arthur, and his 70-year-old wife, Theresa, at the St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Half Assini in the Jomoro District on January 19.

The old man and old lady who had separated for about 32 years were coming back together as husband and wife after much effort from their children.

The eldest son, Mr Richard Kojo Arthur revealed that together with his five siblings, (one deceased), they had tried to bring their parents back together and it took over three decades for them to realise that dream.

“We were quite young when the issues started so we didn’t really understand what caused the separation. Personally, I was in boarding school and would only come home during vacations.

“All that while, we lived in Takoradi but mum was enstooled as a queenmother of Jomoro in the Western Region and moved to settle there. My younger siblings were also in school so they lived with our father and occasionally, we visited our mum during vacations,” he reportedly told The Mirror.
