You’ve probably heard of people who thought their time had passed to tie the knot. Well a couple from Paraguay rips that idea apart. I recently read about a couple who, after 80-years, finally decided to get married. In doing so they became the oldest newlywed couple ever.
Jose Manual Riella is 103 years old, and his new bride, Martina Lopez, is 99 years. A combined 202 years of age! Wow! So, I say to anyone who feels time and their opportunity to marry the man or woman of their dreams has passed, there is hope!
Although they are newlyweds they have been together for years, and have a large family to show. The couple has eight children, 50 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and 20 great-great-grandchildren. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Does this give you hope that no matter how long it’s been getting married may still be in your future?
