An Indian-origin husband and wife, believed to be the world’s oldest married couple, have celebrated their 90th wedding anniversary in the UK.

Karam and Kartari Chand, 110 and 103 respectively, tied the knot in a traditional Punjabi ceremony in India on December 11, 1925, during the British Raj and moved to England 40 years later.



“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,” said Karam.

The couple have eight children, 27 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren and live with their youngest son Paul, his wife and two of their four children. Paul believes the secret to a happy marriage like his parents’ is not to argue.

“Marriage is all about compromise and I believe my parents have had such a long marriage because they have had a happy and stress-free one. In all my years with them, I have never seen them argue and not once have I seen them become angry with each other. I believe that is their secret,”

Karam and Kartari moved to Bradford in 1965 and last month enjoyed a joint birthday celebration with family and friends from around the world.
