Karam Chand, 110, and his wife Kartari Chand, 103, tied the knot 90 years ag0 in a Sikh ceremony in India. And today, on December 11, 2015 they are still together and happy in love. They moved to Great Britain in 1965 and now live with their youngest son, his wife and their children.
Both record-holders were born in November and last month celebrated their joint birthdays with four generations of their big and united family. Kartari and Karim have eight children, 27 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren!
Karam said: “It is a blessing to have been married and to have lived this long. Life and marriage is all about happiness, it is what is most important. We are happy to have been able to enjoy this day with our family. Occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays see our family come together and that makes us very happy.”
According to local media reports, the couple also actively participate in the city life. Last months they opened a new shopping centre, The Broadway, and even led their community in the annual Girlington Parade.
So, what’s their secret to long-lasting life and a happy marriage? Karam and Kartari have said that beyond eating a diet free of anything artificial, they both focus on doing three things: having no secrets, trying not to argue, and spending each day surrounded by family.
