Longest marriages ever (≥81 years)[edit]

This list contains the longest known marriages ever, both of living couples and others. The length of marriage is taken as of the time of the most recent report that both were still living. It is done in this manner to ensure that couples last known to be alive more than a year ago are not still included when there is a more than reasonable likelihood that at least one partner is no longer living. It is reasonable to expect that a report of a subsequent anniversary would be available if both were still alive.
