72-year-old woman who turned down 42 marriage proposals from her boyfriend finally agrees to marry him after over 4 decades


A woman who has turned down 42 proposals from her boyfriend since 1976 finally agreed to marry him and she popped the question herself.

Pauline Young, 72, and Colin Jones, 74, first met in 1976 and every single year since then, Colin has asked Pauline to marry him. He always got “no” as the answer to his proposal and after the latest “no” he resigned himself to never being able to put a ring on her finger.

But the B&B boss, from Maidenhead, Berkshire, was stunned when pensioner Pauline, from London, turned to him and popped the question herself in December last year. They eventually tied the knot last month
