See this gorgeous couple right here?
No, they’re not 20-something, 30-something or even 40-something, but thanks to the fact that love has no age limit, they are living life to the fullest and enjoying a vibrant relationship with each other.
We first heard from Mr. Dakota and Mrs. Mary Ellen Danuser back in March of this year. Mary Ellen contacted us on our Facebook page and had this to say:
“I would like to add a picture on this page of my husband and I. We will have been married 13 years this coming April 13th and together for 18 years. He is my rock and definitely treats me with respect and dignity. We met at a Financial Company called Primerica. We are very committed to each other and are pretty much inseparable. I wanted to submit our picture and story because I seldom see older Swirlers portrayed on your page. I am in the process of writing a book about Interracial Relationships of all races.”
You know what? Mary Ellen was right: Much ado is made of younger Swirl couples. She wasn’t “hating,” she was pointing out a simple truth.
Thankfully, even though the majority of the photos we posted were of much younger couples, the fact remains that men and women of ALL ages are Swirling!
Mary Ellen wants Black Women to know that regardless of their age or place in life (she was divorced with grown children) meeting a quality man is very possible. Dakota, a retired Marine, shares his perspective on life as a White man married to a Black woman.
Mary Ellen and her husband Dakota are living proof.
Age really is just a number. It’s never too late for love!
Listen to the Danuser’s story and gain inspiration. (Find out who made the first move – you’ll be surprised!)
We can’t wait until Mary Ellen’s book is published!
