Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa and Isabel Preysler have been in a relationship for a year (and friends for over 20 years) and are apparently already talking about taking it to the next level.

While Vargas Llosa divorced his former wife Patricia Llosa just last year and Preysler’s late husband Miguel Boyer passed away in 2014, the two love birds are head over heels and trust they have a bright future together.

Preylser talked to Hola! magazine and confirmed that the Nobel Prize winner has indeed proposed but she has not yet given him an answer. “Mario has asked me to marry him, but I still haven’t responded. Nothing is out of the question for our future. All the options are possible,” she said.

If the two did walk down the aisle, it would be the third time for Vargas Llosa, who was also previously married to Julia Urquidi (before Patricia), and the fourth time for Preysler who was married to Julio Iglesias and to Carlos Falco before Boyer.

Preysler did point out that if she were to marry the Peruvian literary star, it would not be a traditional party. “If I did get married [to him], it would not be a traditional multitudinous wedding, and of course, there would be no white dress,” she insisted.

Preysler also said that hearing the eloquent writer speak gives her great pleasure and that she already has numerous love letters that he has given her. “They are really wonderful,” she said.

The two have had much to celebrate this year other than their first anniversary as the Nobel writer also turns 80, he just published his book “Cinco esquinas,” and has been honored with the "Living Legend Award." In an interview back in February, Vargas Llosa admitted that their love was one for a good romantic novel. “This has been the happiest year of my life,” he said.
