But once in a while, a couple comes along who gives you hope that true love still exists.
The DeLaigles' story began nearly 72 years ago in a cafe, according to WRDW / WADT.
They were going to the movies for their first date. One year later, he asked her to be his wife.
The couple is survived by their six children, 16 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.
A funeral service was held for the couple on Monday.
Broken heart syndrome
When married couples or family members following the death of a loved one, the second death is often attributed to a broken heart.
"Broken heart syndrome – which is, in fact, a real thing – when someone is out of shock news, and there's a massive release of these stress hormones that are released into the bloodstream, and the heart is then bombarded with these stress hormones, "said Dr. Matthew Lorber, at psychiatrist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
Severe emotional shock can cause an abrupt weakening of the heart, which can mimic a heart attack.
