Updated at 4:37 pm on 9 January 2012
A couple from Bradford in Britain who tied the knot in 1925 could be the world's longest married husband and wife.
Karam Chand was born in a rural village in the Punjab in northern India in 1905.
His family worked in farming and, in keeping with the custom of the time, he married at a young age.
His bride, Kartari, was born in the same district in 1912.
That makes Mr Chand 106, his wife 99, and their marriage 86 years.
