This Indian Couple Just Celebrated Their World Record 90th Marriage Anniversary

Published on 17 December, 2015 at 6:07 pm By

On December 11, 1925, Karam Chand married Kartari in a traditional Sikh ceremony in British India. Forty years later, in 1965, the couple moved to Bradford in England and have since been living there.

Wait a minute? Did I just write “living there”? Oh yes, they are alive and well. The couple celebrated their 90th marriage anniversary just a few days ago and plan to complete a century.

Officially recognized as the world’s oldest married couple, 110-year-old Karam Chand and 103-year-old Kartari also share the same birth month – November.

Friends and family members from India and other parts of the world wished them both on their birthday and on the occasion of the marriage anniversary.

The happy centenarians have eight children, 27 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.

And they are still into work! To mark their birthdays, Karam and Kartari opened a new Westfield shopping centre, The Broadway, last month.

“It is a blessing to have been married and to have lived this long. Life and marriage is all about happiness, it is what is most important,” Karam said.

So what is the secret of their happy married life? In their own words: keep no secrets, do not argue, and be with family.

Of course, a good diet is essential to live that long.

The record for the longest period of marriage ever is held by Americans Daniel Frederick Bakeman and Susan (née Brewer) Bakeman, who tied the knot on August 29, 1772. Their marriage lasted 91 years and 12 days.
