Karim and Kartari tied the knot in India in 1925. 40 years later, the Chands moved to England.

They have eight children and 27 grandchildren. When Karim passed away, in 2016, the couple had been married for 90 years.

They are believed to have been in the world’s longest marriage.

"I stumbled across their story about having one of the longest marriages in the world in a local newspaper," said Glen Milner, who directed Elders, this film on them, a few years ago.

"We met a few times for chapatis, veggie dahl, and tea. After a while, they finally gave in and let me bring a camera."
