Ecuador’s spouses, 104 and 110, set world records for oldest married couple


Talk about love of a lifetime.

The centenary in Ecuador has been crowned the oldest married couple in the world by the Guinness World Record.

After secretly marrying in February 1941, 104 years of Waldramina Quintos and 110 years of Julio Mora were married for 79 years. While the Associated Press reports that “both families were disowned” at the time, Jaanman believed it should have been.

The retired teacher lives in the capital Quito, and has missed bringing a large family together amidst a health crisis for the coronovirus.

What’s more, Quintos and Mora can draw quite a crowd among their four surviving children, 11 grandchildren, 21 grandchildren and a great-great-grandson.

“Since March, we haven’t had any,” said daughter Cecilia, per outlet. “My parents need family contact.”

Cecilia told her parents that she was glowing, active and in good health, saying she felt a little disappointed by the ongoing outbreak.

“For a month they have been separated, more downcast because they miss the big family celebrations,” he explained.

Hopefully, an award from the world-renowned record-keeping authority will be the only thing to lift their spirits – the couple received Guinness certification in mid-August due to their combined age.

According to the Associated Press, while longer weddings take place, Quintos and Mora currently hold the title as the eldest – a combined shy of 215 years.

Charlotte and John Henderson of Austin, Tex., Were previously listed as the oldest married couple at the age of 212 years and 52 days.

When it becomes regular, quintos and mora keep it simple.
