TAMPA (WFLA/NBC) – This Florida couple are relationship goals and prove it’s never too late to find love!

Gene Yaffee, 81 and Faye Albert,Faye, 78, exchanged vows Tuesday at The Palace Coral Gables, a senior living community.

The pair met using the online dating site eHarmony in 2008. Now 13 years later, they’ve decided to make it official.
