100-year old World War II veteran Harold Terens plans to marry his 96-year old fiancée Jeanne Swerlin in France in June.

Both were widowed but fell in love after being introduced by a friend in 2021.

Terens first visited France as a young soldier shortly after D-Day.

“I love this girl — she is quite special,” Terens said. “He’s an amazing guy, amazing,” Swerlin said. “He loves me so much and he says it.”

“And my god, he’s the greatest kisser,” she said.

In June, he will be honored as part of the 80th anniversary celebrations of France’s liberation from the Nazis.

“I loved all those guys. Young men. The average age was 26,” Terens said.

The couple grew up in New York but had different experiences during WWII – she dated soldiers while he served as a radio repair technician and helped transport freed prisoners.

“She gave my dad such joy,” Katz’s daughter, Joanne Schosheim said of Swerlin. “I didn’t want her to be lonely.”

After being introduced, Terens was initially uninterested in Swerlin but they fell in love on their second date.

“I didn’t even look at her. I didn’t even talk to her,” he said. “I looked at him. He looked at me,” Swerlin said, but “it was like nothing.”

They will travel to France with family to attend anniversary events and get married in the town of Carentan-les-Marais.

“I had never seen him lit up like that,” Eisenberg said of their second meeting. “I said, ‘You’re in love,’” Eisenberg said. “He said, ‘I don’t know. I’ve never had these feelings before.'”

Terens “didn’t give me a chance” to say no, Swerlin said. “He was introducing me to the whole world, ‘I want you to meet my girl, my sweetheart,’ and I didn’t even know him more than two days,” she said. “Being in love is not just for the young. We get butterflies just like everybody else.”

“She got hysterical,” Terens said. “I thought I’d have to help him up, but he’s so macho,” Swerlin said.
