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?

From our childhood through our adult years, one thing we all dream of from time to time is all the things we could do if we had unlimited resources. Buy a castle and become your own anti-hero, solve world hunger, adopt ALL the animals, live on an endless cruise around the world, heck, buy a whole political party *cough cough*.

I admit that I am not a picky eater by any stretch of the imagination. I eat just about anything. I also consider myself pretty adventurous; when I travel, eating good food and trying the local cuisine is at the top of my list!

But even I would be hard-pressed to eat durian or even balut.

Would I say absolutely not? I'll have to get back to you after a trip to Southeast Asia. The jury's out for now.

People had very strong opinions on the food they want nothing to do with after Redditor KentuckyFriedEel asked the online community,

"What dish/food can f*** right off?"

Death is inevitable. It's a truth we're always trying to outrun. Yet we do so many things to speed up the process.

Everyday we are helping ourselves to an early grave. And there are so many ways to avoid that trip. People are telling us all of the time how we can be healthier and better. There are literally books and blogs about ways to keep on keeping on.

So why don't we try and follow some of these ideas. And maybe we should begin trying to pinpoint were we are off and how we could try and avoid that which is poisoning us. Like carbs, well too many carbs, at least for me.

Redditor u/Babynouil wanted everyone to listen up, to make sure we live as long as possible, by asking:

What's something a lot of people do, but don't realise it's shrinking their life expectancy ?

Whether it's a minor inconveniences, people being unaware of their annoyances, or things that just don't make sense, it can stir up some pretty strong emotions.

Now, anger is a totally normal and healthy emotion, but sometimes a high level of anger doesn't seem warranted. However, when those minor inconveniences add up, suddenly we are on a rampage just looking to get mad at it every time it happens.

It could be from someone cutting you off in traffic or the sound of someone chewing. Regardless, it can cause some serious internal turmoil for some people.

Redditor BaconBear36 wanted to know:

"What is something that makes you unreasonably angry?"

Try not to get mad reading this.
