Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher hold the Guinness World Record for the longest marriage of a living couple. The Fishers have been married for 85 years. Zelmiyra is 101-years-old and her husband is 104-years old.

This couple joined forces with twitter to answer some relationship questions about finding love, getting over obstacles, and more.

Check out their interview:

What made you realize that you could spend the rest of your lives together? Were you scared at all?

H & Z: With each day that passed, our relationship was more solid and secure.Divorce was NEVER an option – or even a thought.

How did you know your spouse was the right one for you?

We grew up together & were best friends before we married. A friend is for life – our marriage has lasted a lifetime

What is your advice to someone who is trying to keep the faith that Mr. Right is really out there?

Zelmyra: Mine was just around the corner! He is never too far away, so keep the faith – when you meet him, you’ll know.

You got married very young – how did u both manage to grow as individuals yet not grow apart as a couple?

“Everyone who plants a seed & harvests the crop celebrates together” We are individuals, but accomplish more together.
