On 31 October, local newspaper Kosmo! shared the story of 84-year-old Mahmood Mamat and 80-year-old Fatimah Mohd. Noor, and how they found each other back again after all these years. The couple was first married all the way back in 1958 when they were just 16 and 20 years old. However, the marriage only lasted for a year and they were forced to divorce one another when Mahmood had to relocate back to Pahang to earn a living.

In those 63 years, both of them eventually moved on with their respective lives as they got married and started a family with other people. Little did they know that they will once be reunited after the passing of their respective spouses.
