Gene Yaffee, 81, and Faye Albert, 78, are proof it’s never too late to find love.
The couple wed on June 22 in a Jewish ceremony at The Palace at Coral Gables, a senior living community. The wedding was officiated by Cantor Rachelle Nelson of Temple Beth
Am, with about 25 family and friends witnessing the event.
The couple wants to enjoy life as a married couple before they “get too old,” Faye. explained
Finding love later in life exemplifies their relationship. The couple met on the online dating site eHarmony in 2008. While they’ve been together for 13 years and seemed married in many ways, they decided they wanted to make it official.
Both have been married previously and neither have children. While the couple had been talking about marriage, Gene, who lives at The Palace Coral Gables, proposed to Faye by simply telling her, “It’s time we get married. Will you be my wife?”
Faye’s advice to someone wanting a relationship is to find someone you enjoy being with and be able to laugh together. She says trust in each other and honesty are important; traits she values in Gene.
The Yaffee wedding is the first to be held at The Palace at Coral Gables.
