Gay Granddads Marry After 46 Years Together

by Rob Smith January 19, 2016

If you not ready to catch the feels, you probably shouldn’t read this story.

After nearly 50 years, two granddads finally tied the knot after gay marriage was legalized in the U.S.

Lewis Duckett and Billy Jones , have been together 46 years, and though they are now married, they see the legalization of their union as “an enhancement to the relationship we had.”

The couple met back in the Vietnam days, and when Jones was deployed to do a tour, the men communicated via coded letters. Back then, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was the law of the land, and the men risked dishonorable discharge if they were caught. However, their love survived for the decades since the war.

They adopted a child and are now grandparents, giving new meaning to #lifegoals.

The men were married in New York City last October, and The New York Times chronicled their journey in a short documentary. Watch below, and try not to get tears all over your keyboard.
