This is the oldest couple in the world: happily married for 79 years

Julio Cesar Mora Tapia (110) and Waldramina Maclovia Quinteros Reyes (104) from Ecuador are the oldest couples in the world together. Together they are 214 years old, suitable for an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. The couple from the South American country have been happily married for 79 years.

The two experienced many beautiful and difficult moments during their marriage. Still, they say they keep it up for so long through mutual respect and love. His beautiful poems made Waldramina fall in love with her Julio Cesar. He significantly fell for her beauty and social character, coupled with a strong spirit.

The two have both taught for years in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. They have 5 children, 11 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great-grandchildren.

The secret of their ‘happy family’? “Love, good education, honest work,” says Waldramina. “And apply decent standards and values. It is the key to a healthy and long life.”
