Parents Disapproved But Yet They Got Married And Today Are The Oldest Married Couple In The World Today
11They had a small wedding
It was an intimate and secret celebration because the relatives of the bride and groom did not agree with the marriage. The wedding took place on February 7, 1941. Their godparents and closest friends were present. This union took place in the oldest church in Quito, La Iglesia de El Belén.
12They worked hard on their marriage
They did not take it easy and worked to make things work out. They were so in love and wanting things to go how they planned that they worked night and day to make it happen. They soon had five children; all of them grew up to have a college degree showing how good the couple was as parents.
13They faced everything together
The couple even after all these years together still talk about things and make decisions together just like they did when they were younger. They do not hide anything that is important and they try even today to keep each other as happy as they did before.
14Today they have a huge family
Today they are no longer just a couple with five children. They have 11 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great-grandchildren. Their family is united and they did not make the same mistakes as their parents did. They believe in love, mutual respect, and honest work.
15Even Guinness World Record acknowledges it
Yes, the reason this story is going viral is that Guinness World Records has officially acknowledged them as the world’s oldest living married couple. They are the oldest married couple, with an aggregate age of 214 years and 358 days. This is a great honor and a testament to how strong love can actually be. You fall in love and you make it work.
