Meet the World`s Oldest Couple

Married 86 Years in North Carolina...

Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher,  always viewed marriage as meant to be forever. So, why wouldn’t they still be married after 84 years? The Craven County, N.C., couple at 105 and 103 years old, is the longest living married couple in the world, and they have the certificate from Guinness World Records book to prove it!

Their granddaughter, Iris Godett...e, submitted their names to the Guinness, which authenticated the claim. Zelmyra, who uses a walker to get around the house and yard, still remembers why she decided to marry Herbert on May 13, 1924: “He was not mean; he was not a fighter,” she told the Sun Journal, “He was quiet and kind. He was not much to look at, but he was sweet.”
