Woman, 90, weds man aged 73

London: A 90-year-old woman and a 73-year-old man, whose relationship blossomed since they met seven years ago in Britain, have finally married.

Betty Erskine met her `toyboy` Robin Tremayne when they lived in the same block at the Trafalgar Court retirement home in Uffculme in Devon county.

Robin, whose wife died in 2004, would regularly check on Betty. As time went on, the relationship grew. Two years ago, Robin proposed they marry.

Robin said: "I love Betty, and it just seemed the right thing to do.

"I thought we may as well get married - we get on so well. We never argue and agree on practically everything. So it seemed like the right thing to do."

The couple married before friends and family in Davon Saturday.

Betty and Robin will go on honeymoon later this year. Betty has two daughters, a son and six grandchildren and Robin has a son and a daughter each, three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
