Inspiring story: Couple finally wed 80 years after living together


Elderly Paraguayan couple Jose Manuel Riella, 103, and Martina Lopez, 99-year-old finally got hitched in a religious ceremony after living together for 80 good years. Wonderful!

Mr Riella was on a wheelchair when he promised his eternal love to his partner who wore a long white dress. The wedding took place in the couple’s garden, where an altar had been set up.

 
The ceremony was attended by many of their eight children, 50 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and 20 great-great-grandchildren.

The ceremony was held in front of the couple's home in Santa Rosa. The twosome had already got married in a civil wedding 49 years into their relationship, but had not gone through a religious ceremony at the time.

The couple were presently the oldest newlyweds in Paraguayan.The happy couple felt very emotional at having their relationship blessed by the priest. The vows were followed by an "entertaining" party at the couple's home in Santa Rosa de Aguaray.
