I always liked Fandango’s Who Won the Week post, and like to join in with some quirky stories from my own newsfeeds. All from our unique vantage points, the idea is to pick something (a person, organisation, anything) which “won” the week. Poor old Fandango sounds really p’d off this week, so let’s hope this one will cheer him up.
I guess this is a feelgood story, all the way from Quito, Ecuador.
Julio Mora and Waldramina Quinteros knew each other because his cousin was married to her sister. Romance slowly blossomed between the two, and they were married seven years after they met, on 7th February, 1941 (79 years this year).
Julio was born on 10th March, 1910 (110 years old), while Waldramina is five years his junior, being born on 16th October, 1915 (104 years old). The pair have a combined age of a staggering 215 years.
Last week, they were named by the Guiness Book of Records as the world’s oldest married couple.
I bet they’re absolutely sick of each other!
