A lesbian couple in their nineties have finally tied the knot after 72 years together.
Miss Boyack, 91, and Miss Dubes, 90, sat next to each other in wheelchairs during the ceremony.
The women met in their hometown of Yale, Iowa, while growing up.
Then they moved to Davenport in 1947 where Miss Boyack taught school and Miss Dubes did payroll work.
‘We’ve had a good time,’ Miss Dubes said.
Boyack said it takes a lot of love and work to keep a relationship going for 72 years.
Longtime friend Jerry Yeast, 73, said he got to know the couple when he worked in their yard as a teenager.
‘I’ve known these two women all my life, and I can tell you, they are special,’ Yeast said.
Iowa (a state in US) began allowing gay marriage in 2009.
The two women say it is never too late for a new chapter in life.
