Marriage is a holy union. It was meant to withstand the test of time through love and understanding. Nobody understands this statement better than Waldramina Quinteros and her husband Julio Cesar Mora.
The two couples holds the Guinness Book of Records for the longest marriage in traceable human history with a combined age of 214 years and 358 days.
The couple's who comes from Ecuador were married on 7th February 1941,this is almost 23 years before Kenya could get her independence,and were blessed with 5 children,9 grandchildren,22 great grand children and 10 great great grandchildren.
How did the couple get to know each other and fell in love? Waldramina had a school vacation and she left to visit her sister. The sister was a neighbor to Cesar and that's where they got to know each other and friendship started. They were married 7 years later in a secret wedding since their family did not approve their marriage.
What was their secret? "The love and maturity that we had as a couple from the beginning of the marriage allowed us to know each other and grow emotionally to define our future," the couple told Guinness World Records.
Mr Cesar unfortunately died on 22 October 2020 with 110 years leaving his wife behind who had an age of 105 years.
