John Henderson and Charlotte Curtis aged 106 and 105 respectively who are officially recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest couple and will on December 22, 2019, celebrate their 80th wedding anniversary, and 85 years after sitting in a zoology class in 1934.

John and Charlotte married in a tiny ceremony with only two guests present on Dec. 22, 1939 and during their honeymoon in San Antonio, they stayed at a hotel that cost $7 a night.
Even though they known each other for 85 years, they have been married only for 80, meaning the record for the longest marriage according to Guinness World Records, belongs to Zelmyra and Herbert Fisher, who wed at the ages of 17 and 19, respectively, and were married for 86 years and 290 days before Herbert’s death in 2011.
Speaking to Washington post on Sunday, John Henderson said;
“it took her five years to make up her mind that she wanted to get married,”
“I thought he was just a fine fella, and I didn’t mind his looking over my shoulder,” Charlotte told The Washington Post, remembering the first time she saw John in a Zoology class in front of John while he made passes at her.
The pair have been lauded by many for their long, milestone-filled life together.
However, John has admitted that other people have a different theory for why they’re so happy together.
“Some people say that’s the reason we’ve had such a long married life, ’cause we didn’t have any kids to worry about,”John said, noting that the pair never had children.
