Man, 98, and woman, 95, become oldest newlyweds ever
(Newser)–They call themselves “the Romeo and Juliet of senior citizens,” and with their wedding yesterday, they unknowingly broke a world record—for the couple with the oldest combined age. Together, Lillian Hartley, 95, and Allan Marks, 98, are 193 years, 8 months, and 3 days old, the Desert Sunreports. It will be a Guinness record as soon as they’ve provided the organization with proof of their ages, breaking the previous record of 191 years. “I want to be together for all eternity, and I’m not taking any chances,” says the new Mrs. Marks. The Palm Springs couple, both widowed, met 18 years ago on Yom Kippur, at temple. Marks told Hartley he liked her dress. “I didn’t want a relationship—I enjoyed my freedom—but he got me,” she says. Since then, they’ve been “living together in sin,” Hartley said, spending their time traveling and watching Lakers games. They’re not planning any big honeymoon: “We celebrate every day,” Hartley notes. Still, “I might go to Swiss Donut and have one of the nice donuts.”
