Celebrating Wedding Bliss

Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher are in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s longest living marriage. The North Carolina couple is one year short of the title of the world’s longest marriage with the Guinness Book, held by the late Philipose and Sosamma Thomas of India over 200 years ago. The Fishers have shared 85 years together and on this past Valentine’s Day they shared their secrets in staying together with Twitter.

Herbert, 104, and Zelmyra, 101, accredit their marital bliss to faith in God, a loving family, and focusing on building a relationship. The Fishers weathered good times and bad together and are still referred to as love birds by family. They share 5 children, 10 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. The Fishers are featured here on their 85 and 35 anniversaries.
