Teens Parents Force Her To Split From Fianc, But Her Daughter Tracks Him Down 65 Years Later

For all the romantics out there, marriage is supposed to be a union between two people who fall head over heels forone another, and who can’t envision a life in which they are apart. Thoughit’s a sweet thought, marriage isn’t always between two people in love with each other. Sometimes, families will encourage a union out of convenience or practicality. A few decades ago, parents looked out for their child’s wellbeing by making sure he or she would be very well taken care of once they are gone.

For many women, this meant being matched with wealthier suitors whether they liked them or not.

Unfortunately, women like Helen Andre, who was 17-years-old in 1951, couldn’t follow their hearts and marry the man of their choosing. Her parents intervened in her relationship with Davy Moakes, an artist. Though they were engaged, the pair ultimately split up two years later before they were able to get married.

But the love story wasn’t over: Over the course of 65 years, the two never stopped loving one another. When Andre’s daughter found out the story, she reached out to Moakes through his son, and there could only be one ending to this tale.
