Couldn't it be bunici as well as bunicii? The translation is "Grandparents are old," not "The grandparents are old."

Being a Romance language, Romanian uses the definite article to make general statements about nouns, while English uses no article:

"Grandparents (in general) are old = "Bunicii sunt bătrâni"
