Speaking on his reaction when she asked him to marry her Colin, said, “

“When Pauline asked me, I almost fell off the bed. I’d been asking her all this time so now she was asking me, I said: “of course I will”. We literally lived and worked together for 43 years, I have been floating on air ever since.”

“People say they’ve been together years but really they have maybe an hour before work and then they see each other in the evenings – we were always together. When we saw each other it was instant, we fell in love – hook, line, and sinker. The magic of life allows you to meet people like Pauline, our marriage was a combination of our 43 years together.”

Pauline and Colin had been in other relationships before they met. They both have five children from their exes. When things became serious between them, they relocated to Powys in Wales and started the business of making cabinets.

Since then, the couple lived happily, even though they never got married until Valentine’s Day this year.
