This husband and wife have been married for the longest in history… They share their story here!

A couple in Austin, Texas, just received a prestigious title that many will aspire to but few will really hold. With a combined age of 211 years, John Henderson, 106, and Charlotte Henderson, 105, have just broken the record for the oldest married couple.

On December 15, they will also be commemorating their 80th wedding anniversary. They first encountered one other in class in 1934 when enrolled at the University of Texas in Austin. Their honeymoon cost $7 and was spent in a hotel room after their December 1939 wedding.
