Love at first sight: Elderly couple weds at NC Walmart, where they met…

You can find most anything at your local Wal-Mart.  Even true love?  Last February, Wayne Brandenburg and his bride Susan, both in their mid-sixties, said “I do” in the layaway section of the Wal-Mart in Shallotte, NC  , just a few feet away from where they first met around 2005. Susan worked as a cashier… Wayne, whose wife had passed away, made sure to get in her checkout line, just so he could say hello. The couple went out to a Chinese buffet dinner on their first date. Susan brought along her two daughters and Wayne brought his two granddaughters so that Susan would feel more comfortable. Wayne had a full beard and looked like Santa Claus, he said, which made him an easy sell to the kids.

Wayne started making her lunch every day and bringing it to the Wal-Mart store. “He was very much a gentleman, and I looked forward to seeing him,” she said.  A year later, Wayne proposed to Susan. He couldn’t kneel down because of his bad knees. So he handed her a diamond ring and asked her to marry him.  The couple was engaged for six years. When they finally settled on a wedding date, Wal-Mart was the natural choice for the location.  FYI: Wal-Mart is the most popular place to find love at first sight, according to Psychology Today magazine. http://myfox8.com/2013/06/03/couple-meets-marries-at-nc-walmart/
