75-year-old Little House on the Prairie star marries her brother-in-law

As we grow older, we tend to lose sight of the fact that settling down with that special someone usually happens at different times for different people. For some, the concept of finding love late in life can be a difficult one to comprehend, but for the star of this story, it is a dream come true.

If you have ever found yourself wondering what became of some of your favorite stars from childhood, the answers are typically varied. Some go on to do charity work, others retire from the public spotlight and others even manage to find love.


Little House on the Prairie has a rabid fan base that still cares deeply about the life and times of all their favorite stars from the popular show. While the program has not aired in several years, they continue to maintain a strong level of interest in what the former cast members are doing now.

Longtime fans may remember the teacher (whose real name is Charlotte) from the Walnut Grove school. She tragically lost her husband back in 2012 and while many women in her age group would have retired from the world of dating at this moment in time, she found love in a very unexpected place.

Her sister married a man whose brother would become Charlotte’s friend and even though the two did not immediately become close, they reconnected a few years ago and have been together ever since this fateful moment.

If you are the type of person who finds yourself wondering about the existence of true love, this story serves as a reminder that it does not matter how old we are. As long as your heart is open and you are willing to fall in love, love will certainly find you…no matter how old you are!
