Is there some unwritten code that the holiday season is the ideal time for marriage proposals? I mean there were plenty to be talked about, from the Facebook famous, to the internationally famous [like this one and this one.] We can add yet another to the mix now.

Soul legend Aretha Franklin announced today that she is engaged to be married to her longtime beau Willie Wilkerson. The 69-year-old Franklin battled health problems for a large portion of last year, but has been embracing her health and wellness since her recovery. The wedding is scheduled to be held this summer in Miami Beach.

This is just proof that it’s never too late, and that some people still believe in love and marriage!
