BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The love story of Stanley and Mary Antrobus began at a New Year’s Eve party in 2019.

The couple says it was the first time they met after Mary moved into Crestview Terrace Retirement Community.

“That day I said, ‘I’m going to, all by myself, I’m going to go to that party,’” said Mary.

“She came to the table and asked, ‘Can I sit here,’ and my answer was yes, and we just started talking,” said Stanley.

“He walked down to my apartment with me and I asked him, ‘Would you like to come in?’ And oh my gosh, until 2:30 in the morning, we were sitting there talking,” said Mary.

The couple says it wasn’t long before their friendship blossomed into something more. After both losing their spouses a few years before, the couple says they never expected to find new love.

“I never did expect it,” said Stanley.

Stanley says it wasn’t long before he asked Mary to be his wife.

“The first two times she thought I was joking,” said Stanley “The third time she said yes.”

“I always said I would never get married again, but it was kind of hard to stay away from him,” said Mary.

On May 8, the couple said “I do” at the same place they first said hello.

“I feel like it was God that put us together and has been with us ever since,” said Stanley.
