75-year-old man proposes to ex-wife at Walmart

FORT SMITH, AR - A Walmart employee in Arkansas got a big Valentine's Day surprise, a marriage proposal from her ex-husband.

Louis Demetriades first met Renate Stumpf in Germany in 1959. They got married, but twelve years later the marriage ended.

The two hadn't spoken for forty three years, until last December. On Saturday, February 14,  Demetriades wanted to rekindle the old flames and drove from Tennessee to Fort Smith, Arkansas to propose to her again.

"And why did I come to Walmart to propose to my wife again? It's because she has so many friends here and I knew she would like to share that with them," Demetriades said.

"43 years is a long time and to say yes right away... I'm going to have to test him a little bit first! I will marry him though, because he's a good man," Stumpf said.

The couple has three children. They met when they were teenagers and now they are both 75.
