Stories portraying the lives of mature gay men, particularly those who are coupled, well-adjusted, happy and non-predatory, are few and far between. This is one of those "few and far between" stories, and quite possibly the most beautiful, heartwarming and delightful story of its type I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

My fellow reader @chris191070 refers to Max and Charles in his review as elderly gentlemen, I shall refer to them merely as gentlemen (I am not suggesting you are ageist Chris). They are an inspirational couple, witty and whimsical, full of entertaining stories. They have retained such a zest for life, and more surprisingly perhaps, for each other. Their relationship displays none of the toxicity so often found in couples who have been together for a lengthy period; they rejoice in each other's company, complimenting each other without being cloying. 

The first of @Wombat Bill's stories I had the pleasure of reading. The writing skills he displayed in this story were a promise of things to come, although I don't believe he has ever written two more authentic and endearing characters than Max and Charles (perhaps Edward from Catering With Benefits comes close). 

From an historical perspective this story is an important milestone as it introduced we fortunate readers to Craig and Justin, the driving force behind Catering With Benefits. One could perhaps argue that Max and Charles were the catalyst for what was to follow, but this simple and charming story rightfully stands proudly on its own. 

An experience like no other, beguiling from beginning to end.

This is a love story of two elderly gentleman, Max and Charles.

We follow them as they decide to marry after 50 years together.

With the help of Justin and  Craig, the big day is planned.

Everything goes smoothly  until they receive a strange chest as a wedding gift.

I highly recommend you read about Max and Charles to discover there love for each other and how they deal with the mysterious chest.

Response from the author:

Thank you Chris. It is nice to be able to write about an older couple. I am pleased you think so, as well.
