Four phenomenal marriages in the world
World’s oldest newlyweds
Allan Marks (98) and Lillian Hartley (95) made a unique history, not only in their lives, but also in the world record. The couple married at the age of 98 years and 95 years on February 29, 2012. No wonder if their marriage was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as world’s oldest newlyweds
“I don’t know what will happen. I want to be together for all eternity, and I’m not taking any chances,” the bride said.
“We’re the Romeo and Juliet of senior citizens.”
Most wedding vows
Apparently Lauren Lubeck Blair and David E. Hough really enjoyed their marriage. One time is not enough to make the wedding vows, they repeat the vows again and again. The couple first tied the knot in 1984, and since then they’ve been hitched in the USA, UK, and Dutch Antilles. To get a different atmosphere, Lauren and David always chose a new location to say their vows. The last vow was made at the UPS store in Nashville.
Most distant age different
This woman was Gertrude Grubb Janeway. She was 18 years old when marrying a veteran named John Janeway who was 81 years old. The 63-years age difference didn’t deter them to build a happy marriage, and the marriage lasted until her husband died at the age of 93. Gertrude Grubb Janeway died in January 2003.
The longest marriage
Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher became the longest marriage couple in the world. They have been married for 86 years, until Mr. Fisher passed away on February 27, 2011 at the age of 105 years. This couple could become an inspiration for the modern couples where divorce happens more and more. Take a look at their picture, how romantic they are, holding hands, warm, and loving.
