An Indian-origin man in the UK, believed to hold the record for the world’s longest marriage, has died. Karam Chand (110) died in Bradford a month before his 111th birthday.
Chand, along his wife Katari (103), were one of the oldest living couples in Britain and had celebrated their 90th marriage anniversary in December last year. They got married in December 1925 and moved to the UK after living in India for 40 years. The couple had eight children including four sons and four daughters, 27 grand children and 23 great grand children. The couple never argued with each other and were very supportive of each other, said family members.
