A 103-year-old man and a 91-year-old woman held their wedding in Britain on Saturday, becoming the oldest couple to get married in the world.
George Kirby and Doreen Luckie — together for 27 years — looked delighted as they tied the knot at a hotel in the seaside town of Eastbourne, southern England, before close friends and family. …
With a combined age of 194 years, the pair beat the previous record held by a French couple, Francois Fernandez and Madeleine Francineau, who had a combined age of 191 years.
Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Luckie said the couple had “no regrets” about not doing it earlier. “We didn’t want to bother about marriage before but eventually we did it,” she said.
The couple reportedly have seven children, 15 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren between them.
