World’s Oldest Married Couple Celebrate Their 90th Wedding Anniversary (SEE PHOTOS)
The world’s oldest married couple, with a combined age of 213 years, are celebrating their 90th wedding anniversary.
Karam Chand, 110, and his wife Kartari Chand, 103, from Bradford, West Yorkshire will have a lot to reminisce about over a celebratory slice of cake.
On December 11, 1925, the couple married in a Sikh ceremony in India when the country was still under British rule.
The record holders were both born in November and last month enjoyed a joint birthday celebration with family and friends from around the world.
By this point they must be pretty good at buying each other good gifts, right?
Kartari and Karim moved to Bradford in 1965 and currently have eight children, 27 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
They live with their youngest son Paul, his wife and two of their four children.
Paul said: ‘To be aged 110 and to be so healthy is a huge milestone for anyone…We are still trying to come up with names for what you would call a 90th anniversary, as it is such an achievement.’
He added: ‘I am also proud of the my whole for family for helping us keep my parents in such good health. It is a blessing to have them still around and to have them still telling me what to do.’
Karam, who turned 110 on November 10, while Kartari, who turned 103 on November 1, opened a new Westfield shopping centre, The Broadway, in honour of their achievement last month.
The two local celebrities also led their community in the annual Girlington Parade.
If that’s not love we don’t know what is.
