*For those who think the possibility of marriage is kaput after the age of 50, “In Living Color” actress Kim Coles has got news for you.
Coles, 53, is now engaged to holistic health expert, Reggie Mckiver. And she made the proud revelation on Facebook:
“I am beyond thrilled to announce that I am engaged to a wonderful man. He is kind, loving, funny, smart, driven”,… Posted by Kim Coles on Friday, February 27, 2015
Kim is our type of gal. The type who doesn’t let society tell her what a woman is “too old” to do. She lives life on her own terms, and she and her guy were fortunate to “recognize” each other; without clouding their vision with preconceived notions of what finding your love is supposed to look like. Below, she draws a map that details how she and her man arrived at the same destination:
“I want to tell you how he found me. I got real focused on what I wanted in my personal life and the type of man I wanted to spend my life with. I like to have this conversation around finding your GPS or engaging your GPS, your divine GPS…I’ve made it mean something completely different. Gratitude, passion and success… See last year, I got really focused on the destination I wanted to have in my personal life. And by being really focused with that and setting my destination in that place, I was able to be in alignment with the man who showed up and the man who said I’m there too and I want that too… I’m telling you I am beating every statistic. I am 53 years old and we are not supposed to get married after what 20, 25, 30 maybe? Yeah… that’s not true. I don’t follow any of those rules. I’ve never thought any of those rules applied to me and those rules don’t apply to you either.”
Congratulations Kim and Reggie!
