Paraguay couple finally ties the knot 80 years later

Thursday, October 17, 2013

A 103-year-old man and his partner of 80 years got married in Paraguay.

Jose Riella married 99-year-old Martina Lopez in a religious ceremony.  

The bride wore a traditional white gown with flowers in her hair. The groom opted for a smart dress shirt.

The happy couple held hands as a priest conducted the ceremony in front of their huge family, including eight children and dozens of grandchildren.

The couple had a civil wedding 50 years ago, but never got around to the religious one until now.
