This love story has been in the making since 1933. Jose Manuel Riella and Martina Lopez met before World War II broke out. They fell in love and have been together ever since. 80 years of companionship, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have passed between them.
Just this year, they finally decided to get “serious” – and get married.
Jose and Martina met in 1933. They fell in love and have been together ever since.
They spent 80 years together, but now they are just deciding to tie the knot.
They have eight children, 50 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren together.
Jose is now 103 and his bride Martina is 99.
Even though they were older, countless relatives turned out for the wedding they have all been waiting to see. After the priest gave the couple his blessing, Mrs. Lopez became very emotional.
She was waiting for that moment for a long, long time.
