Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

Online dating isn't just for fair youth. Molly Holder was almost 90 when a Scottish man in his early 80s caught her eye on Match.com. When she began messaging with Edward Nisbet, they discovered a common love for poetry and grammar. The pair met for the first time in January and tied the knot earlier this month. The bride says she loves hearing Nisbet read Shakespeare in his Scottish accent. He calls her Molly My Love.
