Texas Couple Holds the Guinness World Record for Oldest Married Couple
The oldest married couple lives in Texas, and both are alumni of the University of Texas. Hook 'Em!
According to the Guinness World Records, husband and wife, John and Charlotte Henderson, are the oldest married couple with a combined age of 212 years. The Henderson's were married in 1939, and celebrated 80 years of marriage in December.
Honestly, I always wanted to be married at the age of 25 for this exact reason- to break records! Probably not the best reason to get married, which might explain why it hasn't happened yet.
The legendary couple met while attending the University of Texas in 1934 according to CNN. At the time Charlotte was studying to become a nurse, while John played on the football team. Just 5 years later the two were married, and the rest as they say, is history.
Cheers to true and everlasting love, Texas style!
