It's a scene right out of The Notebook.

Ryan Gosling and Rachel MacAdams, eat your heart out!


Karl and Donna Von Schwarz, from Youngstown, Ohio, have been married for 63 years. They still live on the street they grew up on near Youngstown.

In that time, they've had four kids together, followed by nine grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Donna, who is 81, survived a lot of health complications in 2018 that could have been fatal; including open heart surgery, a seizure and a stroke.




"Grandpa never left her side," said their grandaughter, Karly Gibbs.

"The rehab center brought in a chair where he slept every night until she was strong enough to come home."

In order to get her through the trying times, Karl, who is 84, promised Donna an engagement ring when she came home.

And he fulfilled that promise, wheeling her into a jeweler, buying the ring and dropping down to one knee to propose to her--again.



Needless to say, the internet is having some feels about these two.





"What in the world?" Donna said when Karl dropped to one knee.

But look at her face.

It tells all you need to know about how she feels.






"It was great because it's a gal that I've loved all of my life," Karl told WFAA in an interview.

"It was very easy. You know we've been together so long that we can't stay apart really."

Has there literally ever been a truer love story?

How you approach life's many trials and tribulations can say a lot about who you are. However, many of us don't necessarily learn some lessons so easily.

Life is complicated. It's messy. Few, if any things, go according to plan. On top of that, sometimes the way we handle our relationships or our obligations might not be the most healthy one.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

People shared their stories after Redditor ryanblumenow asked the online community,

"What did you learn at great personal cost?"

You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor AnnFaulskabek asked the online community,

"What is a legitimate product / service that still feels like a scam?"

When you really think about it, childhood is actually just rife with trauma.

The things we see as children, are things we are never going to escape. And nobody fully prepares you for it.

Every child born should be assigned a therapist along with a pediatrician.

Life is going to bombard us with memories we'll never unsee, because the actions of humans are random and as a child we're forced to watch.

The mark is left. So let's hear about some trauma.

Redditor Banjoman653 wanted to hear from everybody willing to share some childhood tales, by asking:

"What’s a really f**ked up thing you’ve witnessed as a kid but didn’t realise it was until you were older?"
