Mr Mora was born on 10 March 1910 and Ms Quinteros on 16 October 1915
Julio Mora and Waldramina Quinteros are officially the world’s oldest couple. He is aged 110 and she is 104, they’ve awarded the Guinness World Record for the world’s oldest married couple. Married in 1941 in first church built by the Spanish in Quito: La Iglesia de El Belen.
There are longer marriages that the Guinness World Records is aware of, but none between people so old.
Julio secretly slipped away from his parents to wed his lover as neither of their families approved.
“We never divorced, never something similar. We didn’t think about that,” Ms Quinteros said.
Both are retired teachers and live in the north-central part of Quito, Ecuador’s capital.
