Julio Cesar Mora Tapia and Waldramina Maclovia Quinteros Reyes, an Ecuadorian couple, were named the world's oldest married pair by Guinness World Records in 2020.
They had a total age of 214 years, with Mora Tapia being 110 and Quinteros Reyes being 104. Tapia went dead at home from dementia after a 79-year marriage.
Couples who have been together for a long time know how to keep their love growing. Along with their "secret recipe" of love, maturity, and mutual respect, this couple had one eating habit in common that played a significant role in their relationship.
The couple hosted large family and friend feasts that brought all of their loved ones together, according to Guinness World Records.
This practise corresponds to the Blue Zone Diet, which is based on the diet and lifestyle of the world's longest-living people from five different regions.
Strong social relationships with a sense of purpose and community are an important feature of the blue zone lifestyle. Another option is to do everything by hand, whether in the kitchen or in the garden.
Planting and harvesting were two of their favourite activities. They would share the fruits with family and friends in large banquets to spread the love.
Sharing family memories was a significant deal in the couple's life, but it wasn't always that way. The couple's families did not get along at first, forcing them to marry in secret.
In 79 years of marriage, they have carried their love with them. There were five children, eleven grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren in total.
According to Guinness, they believed that life was better when the foundations of the family were built on love and respect. They also believed family unity was everything.
