About a year ago, Martha Potu accidentally dialed the wrong number and instantly connected with the person on the other side, Sofian Loho Dandel, a mechanic in Indonesia.
A year after and the two of them are happy newly weds. Dandel said he fell in love with Martha's voice and decided to meet her in person and was surprised to see she was an 82-year-old widow.
Dandel himself is 28 and the couple have a 54-year age gap. Dandel said his love and feelings for her did not change after knowing her age.
On February 18, the couple exchanged vows and became man and wife in front of friends and family in Indonesia.
Dandel said: "She was caring and full of energy and with each passing day, I was drawing towards her. I had never dated before and started feeling in love. I could not wait to meet her but I did not know how old she was. But we felt really in love and agreed to continue this relationship."

Martha added: "I used to pray God for a companion who can take care of me at this old age and he answered my prayers by sending Sofian as a blessing into my life."
