Oldest Couple In The World Celebrate 80th Wedding Anniversary And They Have No Kids
Dec. 16, 2019
John Henderson, aged 106 and Charlotte Curtis aged 105 are officially recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records as the world's oldest couple and will on December 22, 2019, celebrate their 80th wedding anniversary, and 85 years after sitting in a zoology class in 1934.
John and Charlotte married in a tiny ceremony with only two guests present on Dec. 22, 1939 and during their honeymoon in San Antonio, they stayed at a hotel that cost $7 a night.
Even though they known each other for 85 years, they have been married only for 80, meaning the record for the longest marriage according to Guinness World Records, belongs to Zelmyra and Herbert Fisher, who wed at the ages of 17 and 19, respectively, and were married for 86 years and 290 days before Herbert’s death in 2011.
The pair have been lauded by many for their long, milestone-filled life together.
