(KSL News) -- One local great-grandmother is still driving and dancing at 98, so why not get married?

That's exactly what Adina Hart Lloyd did today, marrying a younger man, 94-year-old George Barton, who she met ballroom dancing. Both of them lost their first spouses 50 years ago.

It was supposed to be a small simple ceremony, but the crowd was so big it had to be moved to a nearby church.

Adina Hart Lloyd Barton, 98-year-old Newlywed: "We're just glad to be married. We've only known each other less than three months, but we thought we would like to share a life together and we decided to get married. And we didn't think we would need to ask our parents."

The couple says they're also old enough they don't need a honeymoon. Adina says she plans on living another 25 years.
