They are from Ecuador and the marriage, which began in secret, has been going on for 79 years.
Julio Mora and Waldramina Quinteros have been married longer than most people. He is 110 and she is 104 and has just received the Guinness World Record for the oldest couple in the world, reports the website Sky News which also reveals photo frames.
Mr. Mora was born on March 10, 1910 and Mrs. Quinteros on October 16, 1915. Together, the Ecuadorian couple lived almost 215 years.
These Ecuadorians were married in 1941 in the first church built by the Spanish in Quito: La Iglesia de El Belen. Julio secretly left his parents to marry his mistress, which neither family approved.
“We never divorced or anything like that. We don’t think about it”, disse Quinteros.
Both are retired teachers and live in the north-central region of Quito, the capital of Ecuador.
