These Two 9-Year-Olds Saying Goodbye Will Break Your Heart


I would like to say as of June 29 at 2:15 P.M., two nine-year-olds have a much more romantic love life than yours truly.

Earlier this week, Merce and Mylee were photographed by Mylee’s older sister Haylie as they said goodbye before Merce and his family moved across the country.

Guys, they are wearing matching shirts!

They have been “together” for seven years now but first met when they were toddlers.

Their parents told Yahoo! that they greet each other with a hug before every class and then he walks her to her car and gives her another hug at the end of every day.

They would go to dance competitions together when they were two and three years old, holding hands and hanging out.

Merce’s dad Glen Meynardie said, “When Mylee found out we were moving she said, ‘My life is over. I’m supposed to marry Merce. How am I going to marry him if he is California?'”

Oh, you’re crying at your desk? Same!

Merce + Mylee = 4ever. I will be patiently waiting for my wedding invite in the mail.
