List of people with the longest marriages

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list contains long marriages reported by reliable sources, both extant and historical (by order of length). The length of marriage is taken as of the time of the most recent report that both were still living. It is done in this manner to ensure that couples last known to be alive more than a year ago are not still included when there is a more than reasonable likelihood that at least one partner is no longer living.
