A Walmart employee in Arkansas received quite the surprise on Valentine’s Day – a proposal from her ex-husband, who she divorced over 40 years ago.
Renate Stumpf was working at the store in Fort Smith on Saturday when 75-year-old Louis Demetriades walked in, declared "Hey good lookin'”, and held up a sign that read: “Happy Valentine’s Day! Will you marry me?” KFSM 5 News reported.
The couple met on an army base in Germany in 1959, when they were both 18.
"When we saw each other again last December, we knew right then we still loved each other for sure," Stumpf said. "That love has never passed."
Stumpf said it was the best Valentine’s Day she’s ever had but revealed they were in no hurry to get married again straightaway.
