TRUE LOVE: Promise kept 50 years after

1,002FollowersFollow

Two childhood friends who vowed to get married if they were still single at 50 are getting married today in the United States, decades after they went their separate ways.

Kimberley Dean from Minnesota, who turned 50 last year, will marry her partner and childhood friend Ron Palmer today Friday.

The wedding follows a promise they made to each other years ago, the Star Tribune reported.

“I never got along with anyone else as well as I got along with her,” said Palmer, now 54.

The two met when they were teenagers and went on to be high-school sweethearts. However, after high school, both went their separate ways and both got married to people they didn’t really connect with. But for 30 years, they have stayed in touch with the bond between them growing every day.

In 2016, their relationship became romantic again. Then last year, after Dean’s birthday, the two remembered their pact — and Palmer proposed, the Star Tribune reported.

“I think we both knew, even in high school, that we were supposed to be together,” says Dean, a school district administrator.

“I truly did love her back when we were kids,” says Palmer, a safety coordinator. “I’ve always loved her. She’s such an awesome friend.”

Although she regrets that it took them so long to finally get together, Dean says it was maybe for the best.

“We had to go through all those relationships — the good, the bad, the ugly, the complete heartbreak — to get to where we are right now. We’ve even talked about, if we had gotten married all those years ago when we were younger, would we still be together?”

Her daughter from a previous marriage, Kayla, told the Star Tribune that she always knew her mom would end up with Palmer.

“People who are meant to be together will always find each other,” she says. “It may take 37 years, but it can happen.”
