I'm sorry, but is this a joke? Who in their right mind would consider the couple in the current image to be elderly? I rather like the top half of this◊ image from The Golden Girls (This◊ was my first choice, but unfortunately, it was the biggest one I could find).
Current picture for reference:
Hollywood Elderly... The image is also rather high quality. However, I prefer the suggestion.
Anime-tedI can tell that Adama and Ross are older, but the top half of the OP suggestion is better at actually showing the trope.
They might be older, but not OLD. This trope seems to suggest white haired, wrinkled people and these people look like they're in their 50s, at most (the woman could pass for being in her 40s).

So is this for any old couple, or just a couple who met when they were old?

I think it's supposed to refer to characters who fell in love at an older age. However, at the risk of igniting JAFAAC or "Does Not Illustrate" arguments, I think that showing the elderly couple without any context that they fell in love later in life would probably be OK.
Here's the picture cropped: ◊
Perhaps this thread will actually get some responses if I suggest a few more images? Another Golden Girls image: ◊ And I think that live action images would work best here, but here are a whole bunch from The Simpsons: ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊
TerradorablyfyingI like that Golden Girls one — it shows they aren't merely an elderly couple who have always been together since youth.
Too lewd◊? (the applicable panel should be obvious)
Belief or disbelief rests with you.
Yeah, it's probably a bit much. Funny, though.
A few Real Life images (because the current image is still driving me nuts). I found these using the terms "elderly couple marriage" and "elderly couple wedding": My favorite:  More: ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ Now that it's obvious that these couples got together later in life, can we finally pick something? I know I'm being pushy, but the couple in the current image doesn't even look old enough to get the senior discount at Hometown Buffet! Not to mention that these images will provide many more amusing and clever captions.

Anime-tedSince I can't look at any of the suggestions right now - do we have enough good ones for a crowner?
Avatar by NeoriceisgoodI think so. Gonna agree with redhed 311, 14.1 is best of that batch. (Direct link, since it probably won't stay on that site's page 2 forever.)

Terradorablyfying14.1 shows two very clearly elderly people getting married happily; I prefer it to the others in this thread. At 300px:

Anime-tedGood enough. It's up and tagged; caption at will. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
