Divorce is usually the last chapter in a love story gone wrong. But that wasn't true for Robert Worthington and Bev Worsnop, a couple who decided to remarry 30 years after calling it quits.
The couple originally married when Bev was just sixteen years old. Although they were childhood sweethearts, the union only lasted five years.

"We were married at the old Bolton Register Office in the town center and stayed together for five years," Bev told the Daily Mail. "I was only 16 and was pregnant, but we both felt we had been too young to get married. We wanted some freedom."
In the years that followed, Bev married again, and then divorced again. It was the couple's daughter, Kelly Worthington, who facilitated their reunion thirty years later.

"She'd grown up living with me, but wanted to make contact with [her father]. So I left a note at his home just under two years ago, saying Kelly wanted to get in touch with him."
Bev and Robert lived near each other in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom. After Kelly decided she wanted to meet her father, the spark that first brought the childhood sweethearts together was reignited. The two decided to remarry earlier this month, and their daughter, now 32, was a bridesmaid.
"Kelly is now over the moon," Bev said. "There's a lot of catching up for us all to do."
Here's wishing the couple all the best on their second time around.

Why can't some people just be happy for people who are happy? I believe that we all have to go through what we have to go through in order to get to where we need to be and to learn to appreciate what we have. Sometimes it might take some of us a little longer to get there. Congratulations!!!
The first love is usually the hardest to get over with.
All's well that ends well. Destiny at play again?
Best wishes to the couple.
