People Share Their Grandparents' Love Stories. Adorable!

People on Buzzfeed were asked: "What's your grandparents' sweetest love story?" These are some of the most adorable answers.




One year on his tax forms, my grandfather under "marital status" checked "other" and wrote in "I fell in love all over again." I think it was more to mess with the IRS than to do something sweet for my grandmother, but two birds I guess.

When my grandparents were in college, my grandma stole a "physicians parking spot" sign from a parking lot on campus. Someone turned her in and she was given a fine. She couldn't pay the fine, so some stranger paid it for her. That stranger was my grandpa. They've been married over 50 years. Although no one will confirm it, I have a hunch my grandpa turned her in so he could pay her fine and ask her out.

My Tata went into the hospital for surgery about 6 years ago for something common. During the surgery, they found an aggressive tumor and ended up with a life estimate of six months which soon changed to two weeks. During which, my grandma never left his side, she would just sleep on the couch by him. 

When he passed away, my aunts went through his things and found a greeting card tucked away into his hospital things. It was a Mother's Day card. Apparently, sometime during his stay, he snuck downstairs into the gift shop to get my Grandma a card since he had never missed one and knew she would be missing him when the date came up a few weeks after his death. It was simple and beautiful and it's one of my favorite memories of him and his love for her.

When my grandfather's health started deteriorating, it started with a small series of strokes. My mom and I drove up to be with my grandmother while he was in the hospital. That night, my grandmother asked me to sleep with her, which weirded me out at first, which must have showed on my face. She followed that up with the 50 years they'd been married they've never slept apart.

My grandfather has short arms. All the sleeves on his long sleeved shirts are too long for his arms, and he despises rolling up his cuffs. I recently discovered that my grandma, for the past 50 years, has been hemming every single one of his shirt sleeves to the right length, just because he doesn't like rolling them up. It's small, but such a genuine act of love.

My grandpa designed and built their house himself and when it was time to install all of the counter tops he took my grandmas measurements and made everything exactly to her height. Which is [important] since he had a good foot or more height difference than her.

My Nanna was a secretary in my Grandad's father's building. Granddad started driving her home from work on his motorbike but they weren't officially dating. Nanna's mom saw her on the bike one day and forbade her from riding on it again. 

Nanna told Granddad that they couldn't ride home together anymore. The next day he turned up in a new car. He'd sold his bike so he could carry on giving her a lift home.

There is a photo of my grandma and her friends leaning out of a train window that they just boarded in London on their way to Austria. As the photo was taken, they saw my grandpa on the platform and tried to talk my grandma in to talking to the handsome gentleman. A little while later and they spot him again, sitting further down the carriage but neither of them spoke to each other. Later that night (it was an overnight sleeper train) neither of them could sleep and and they bumped into each other in the carriage. They were talking for most of the night and decided to keep in contact and meet up on the journey back to England. 

After a couple of years of letter writing and dating, my Grandpa walked from London to North Wales (200 miles and a 3 day journey) to ask for her father's permission to ask her to marry him! They've been married for nearly 60 years, travelled the world together as a doctor and nurse saving people's lives, have 4 children, 5 grandchildren and soon to have a great grandchild.

My grandfather's wedding ring fell off in the yard one day. He went out and bought a metal detector to find it, looking every day. He refused a new ring because he loved that ring so much, it was a part of Grams.

My grandma and grandpa both went to the same high school. My grandma being a year younger never knew of my grandpa until one Friday night football game. Their high school's team was one touchdown away from winning the game. When their team got that touchdown my grandpa was so excited he turned around and kissed the first girl he saw. That girl was my grandma, and they have been together ever since.

My grandpa was diagnosed with cancer in 1994 and knew that his time was coming. He decided to write my grandma a card with greetings for all the major yearly holidays. On the bottom wrote that although he wouldn't physically be there, he would still be with her through the best moments in life. She still has it hanging in her bedroom.

My grandfather was supposed to have an arranged marriage with my grandmother's sister, and a couple of months before the whole wedding was supposed to be planned, my grandmother, her aunt, and her mother all went to his house to see him. We live in Western Asia, and it's pretty commonplace to have arranged marriages, even in this day and age.

Upon seeing my grandmother, my grandfather fell head over heels in love. He told his aunt, who was arranging the wedding, to postpone the wedding so he could get to know her. When she refused, he said he'd get her solid gold bangles if she complied, and she, knowing that he could, agreed. So eventually they got married and he built her a huge bungalow with two courtyards to raise their kids in. And that house is standing to this day, and it's where I was raised.

My grandparents had been married for 50 years before my grandfather got Alzheimer's. My grandmother visited him everyday at the nursing home and brought food and gifts and tried to make him recognize her again. He did and he fell in love with her all over again and proposed to her. And that proved to me that true love really exists.

My grandma used to cycle passed the garage where my grandad worked every day on her way to work. My grandad eventually plucked up the courage to ask her on a date and they arranged to meet outside his work one evening. My grandad was so nervous he couldn't decide what to wear and ended up wearing his full RAF uniform. Problem was that at this point he was around 2 hours late and he thought my grandma would be long gone. 

However when he turned up my grandma was stood there, waiting for him, and she wasn't mad or upset that he was late, she just complemented him on how handsome he looked and was flattered that he had made such an effort. 

They were married for 50+ years until she died in 2010, and she would always tell the story of how my grandad had kept her waiting on their first date but how he made up for it by being so handsome.

My grandpa used to walk everywhere he went. One day as he was walking to visit a friend, he saw my grandma perched on her window looking over the neighborhood. He said that was the moment he fell in love. Everyday he walked by her house to try and get her attention. After several months, she finally exchanged words with him. Since this was the 40's, he wasn't allowed to go inside. The only way they could talk to each other was through the window. After several more months of this, my grandma's dad finally let my grandpa in the house where he asked for my grandma's hand in marriage. They were married for 68 years.

My grandad is always up at 5:30 and he makes my grandma a cup of tea and takes it upstairs to her along with milk and biscuits so that she can stay in bed. It's nothing big but they love each other more than anyone I know and this cup of tea shows how much my granddad would do for his wife.

On her way to a party, my grandma asked a friend for a ride. She didn't know that her friend also have a ride to someone else. When they arrived to the party, a random guy started to hit on my grandma and she was very very uncomfortable. She then felt a hand on her shoulder (kind of a hug) and someone said "Leave my girlfriend alone" and the guy left. The guy that saved her then danced with her the whole night. He was her first everything (kiss, boyfriend...) and her only love. He was my grandfather. 63 years together until she died in 2014; he passed away 2 years later.

My grandfather doesn't like sleeping in separate rooms without my grandmother and the reason he gives is that he can't hear the alarm clock and so needs my grandmother to wake him up but even though he tries to hide it we all know that deep within he just really can't bear to be without her.

My grandmother was always very sick and weak and got tired very easily, so every Sunday when they got home from mass she would stand on my grandfathers feet and he would dance them round the living room. Also, my grandmothers name was Peggy and every time they watched M*A*S*H and it was an episode where BJ writes home and at the end of the episode would say "I love you Peg" my grandad would turn to my granny and say "I love you Peg".

PoppyBear

My Grandad was out dancing when he saw my Grandma on the dancefloor. Tapping on the shoulder of his friend next to him, he pointed to my Grandma and said "One day, I'm going to marry that girl!"

In 2015, my Grandad passed away from lung cancer after 59 and a half years of marriage to my Grandma. If that isn't cute, I don't know what is.

My grandfather was invited to a party, and the host asked him what sort of girls he was interested in meeting. My grandfather responded: "I'm looking for a blonde who wears red shoes." It was meant as a joke, and his friend didn't require the ladies to wear red shoes, but in walks my grandmother: a blonde wearing red shoes. They were married for over 50 years.

My grandparents have been together for almost 60 years and both are very ill. Grandpa has late stage Parkinsons and grandma has early stage but fast progressing Alzheimers. Grandpa lives in a hospital care facility and we take grandma to see him a few times a week and it's just the cutest and most tearjerking meeting EVERY TIME. Grandma sits next to him, holds his hand, constantly kisses him and tells him that he's the best man in the entire world and how much she loves him and missed him being home. Then she forgets she said all that after 5 minutes and does it again and again and they just spend hours upon hours in his room kissing and cuddling.

My grandad and grandma met at at an ice rink, and my grandad loved how she was so much taller than him - but my grandma was not impressed and changed the days that she would go ice skating. Grandad quickly figured this out and went every day until he met her again. They where married for over 35 years.

My grandparents got married on 3rd September 1939, war broke out in Europe the next day. My grandfather signed up and was gone within weeks, my nan was 18 and already pregnant by that time. He didn't return for 6 years. On their ruby wedding anniversary in 1979, the family surprised them with a trip to Paris, to give them the dream honeymoon they never got to take. My nan wrote a poem about the whole thing, and that along with other poems were put in a book my parents gave me on my wedding day.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

Giphy

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
