A look at the remarkable lives of the elderly

 

China's oldest newlyweds

The couple exchanged their "I-do's" last week in China's Zhejiang Province. The 106-year-old groom and 81-year-old bride are being recognized as the oldest newlyweds in the country.

Pan's first wife passed away more than 20 year ago and Chen's ex-husband died of illness 11 years ago. The couple, both native of Yongjia County, got to know each other eight years ago and Chen has been taking care of Pan ever since.

The pair decided to get married in April and their decision won support of the two families.

"We were told that we needed to show our residence cards to get married, but Chen's has been lost for a long time," said Pan.

Local civil affairs bureau made a concession to the couple after getting to know their story.
