This Paraguayan couple met each other, fell in love and moved in
together in 1933, six years before the outbreak of World War Two.
Jose Manuel Riella, 103, finally vowed to give himself to Martina
Lopez, his 99-year-old bride, during a ceremony attended by dozens of
their family members, their eight children, 50 grandchildren , 35
great-grandchildren and 20 great-great-grandchildren.
And eighty years later, they decided to cement their relationship – by getting married.
After the vows there was an ‘entertaining’ party and the priest who presided over the Catholic ceremony said they were the oldest newlyweds he had ever married.
