Couple married against their parents’ wishes – now they become the oldest married couple in the world.

The elderly couple have defied all expectations. Their record-breaking marriage began in a secret wedding ceremony and has lasted for almost 80 years!

Waldramina Maclovia Quinteros Reyes and Julio Cesar Mora Tapia from Quito, Ecuador prove that true love lasts forever. After so many years of being together, the couple’s love spark has always been there.

Julio Cesar Mora Tapia and Walddramina Maclovia Quinteros Reyes have been married for 79 years.

The young lovers fell in love during Waldramina’s school vacation and married on February 7 of 1941. Since then, they’ve overcome all obstacles life has thrown at them.

Their families objected to their romance when they first met. That didn’t stop them.

As a result, our relatives did not have good relationships, but with time and patience, we were able to unite them, and we became an example and a reference to the younger generations.”

The love between Walddramina Maclovia Quinteros Reyes and Julio Cesar Mora Tapia blossomed into the resilient flower we see today.

Their wedding was a secret ceremony.

From the beginning, they broke the rules!

Waldramina and Julio’s story recently went viral. Everyone can now see their lasting love.

Guinness World Records just recognized them as the oldest married couple in the world.

In other words, they are the oldest married couple on the planet combined. The two of them have a combined experience of 214 years.

Julio and Waldramina have shared their wonderful lives for so long! Couples are made for each other.

Both of them were teachers when they were young. Now they’re contentedly retired, snug in the loving embrace of their family.

They enjoy cinema and large family dinners.

Waldramina and Julio have five children, 11 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren!

Their family is their greatest achievement. The five children in their immediate family all graduated from college, something this couple is extremely proud of.

The lives of Julio and Waldramina have been filled with love and success despite initial hardships.

Their love remains unchanged as the world changes.

They have always been there for each other no matter what.

Nothing’s changed, after all these years.
Now, they can reap the love they’ve invested in their flourishing family.

They’ve always had so much love to give, and they still do. Their relationship’s truly inspiring.

A pandemic cannot slow them down.

With the help of immediate family, they’re doing okay these days.

While they haven’t seen extended family in a while, they are remaining patient until they can. Soon, hopefully.

Throughout their lives, the seeds of their original secret have blossomed into a loving family.

Julio is 110, and Waldramina is 104.
