This story is more than heartwarming! A Russian couple reunited after being separated for 60 years. Anna and Boris Kozlov were married only for three days. Because of rejoining the Red Army, he had to leave his wife. “We kissed goodbye – but I never expected we wouldn’t see each other for more than half a century.” – Anna said. By the time Boris returned, he found that Anna’s family had been exiled to Siberia, for being enemies of Stalin. Boris wasn’t able to find his wife for 60 years. Despite all of his attempts, his wife and her family were gone. After 60 years, in 2008, the 80-year-old men had returned to visit his parents’ grave. At the same time Anna had returned to Borovlyanka (her hometown), and they saw and instantly recognized each other.
“My darling I’ve been waiting for you for so long. My wife, my life…” – that was what he said to her upon their meeting.
They were married to other people while separated. Both of them were widowed, so Boris suggested they re-marry. And…they lived happily ever after!
