In real life, few married couples manage to carry love and respect through the years of marriage and keep their union unbreakable. Therefore, the news that there are people on Earth who have celebrated an oak wedding makes the heart beat faster and believe in a miracle.
John and Charlotte Henderson from Texas last December celebrated their rare wedding date - 80 years from the date of their marriage. Husband and wife are Guinness Book holders in two nominations at once: as the oldest married couple in the world and as the oldest of the couples of long-livers in total age (211 years for two). By the way, the spouses have known each other much longer and did not immediately tied themselves to an eternal oath, but looked closely at each other and tested their love for the strength of the whole five years before marriage.
The couple celebrated the festive date in the same way as the wedding in 1939: John came to Charlotte in a retro cabriolet and, having handed her a large bouquet of flowers, took her to a banquet in their honor.
