Leslie Harper, 93 and Elsie, 90, from Driffield, first married in 1941 but separated several years later and both went on to remarry.
It was when the pair lost their partners that Mr Harper plucked up the courage to get back in touch with his ex-wife, leading to them reuniting.
Mrs Harper said: “It’s much better this time. We laugh every day.”
Why it went wrong in the first place I don’t know but it’s certainly a real lift up since then”
The couple, who have one daughter, divorced in 1954.
