Getting Married at 85!
Today the Spanish billionaire Duchess of Alba, or more familiarly called as "Cayetana de Alba" at 85 fulfilled her wish of getting married to Alfonso Diez, a civil servant 25 years her junior after appeasing all her children's qualms dividing her vast estates and properties among her clan before her marriage.
It is amazing how a woman of her age can be so upbeat. As she came out from her nuptial ceremony with the people shouting with joy, she improvised some flamenco steps, after kicking off her shoes, to the delight of the crowd. Spontaneity spells her name and it is tremendously surprising how one can seem to be at the peak of her life at 85! She was radiantly happy on her wedding day and nothing seemed to be more important than having been married to the man she loved. On the other hand, Alfonso Diez, also had the look of a good looking man who just came to rescue his princess. It just seemed like a fairy tale.
In the news, everyone centers on the fact that she is too old for him or that she is too rich for him but on final count, what really matters is that love conquers all and eliminates all barriers. Love works miracles.
