WATCH: The Hendersons celebrate 80 years!!

December 12, 2019

Meet John and Charlotte Henderson of Austin—they are Guinness World Record Holders for being the Oldest Married Couple in the World.

John, 106, and Charlotte, 105, met at the University of Texas in 1934, married in 1939 and now live in the retirement community Longhorn Village in Austin, Texas. When Booker, Alex and Sara heard the story they knew they had to do something. Charlotte’s fondest memory of their first date all those years ago was the orchid he gave her and the Roadster he picked her up in. With the help of Longhorn Village and the owner of a 1931 restored Roadster, we recreated that beloved day. Cheers to the Hendersons for 80 years of marriage--thank you for sharing your amazing story with us!
