Ecuadorian spouses are the “oldest married couple” in the world.

Julio Cesar Mora Tapia, 110 years old, and Waldramina Quinteros Quiros Reyes, 104, have been married for 79 years, a union that has only grown stronger with time.

They shared many happy moments together, but they faced challenges and difficulties as married couples. They are the oldest married couple due to their love and respect for one another. Their combined age is 214 years and 358 days.

Julio Cesar was conceived on March 10, 1910, while Waldramina was created on October 16, 1915. Julio Cesar was alive before the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912.


Originating from Ecuador, Julio Cesar & Waldramina have dedicated their lives and retirement to teaching.

Waldramina visited her sister in Julio Cesar’s apartment during school vacation. They met through the cousin of Julio Cesar, her brother’s husband.

They developed a close friendship which led to a loving relationship that resulted in them getting married seven years later.

Waldramina met Julio Cesar, a kind and loving man with great literary potential. He captured her attention with his beautiful poetry.

Julio Cesar fell for Waldramina due to her beauty, long conversations, and big heart.


They were married on February 7, 1941. Because the groom and bride’s relatives disagreed with their marriage, it was an intimate and secret ceremony.

Their godparents and close friends accompanied them. The union was held in La Iglesia de El Belen, Quito’s oldest church.

They became the parents of five children, and all had college degrees. This is a significant accomplishment and a legacy they believe is essential. They believe education is the foundation of modern society.

The death of their oldest son, aged 58, was a tragic loss.

Today they have a huge family of 11 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great-grandchildren. They believe family unity is essential and that a family built on love and respect is better for everyone.


The couple stated that family unity is key to harmonious coexistence.

Aura Cecilia, one their daughters, stated that the family enjoys each other’s company and goes to the movies together. They want to harvest and share their fruits with friends and family through large dinners.

Julio Cesar, Waldramira, and Waldramira believe that love, maturity, and respect are the keys to a happy and long-lasting marriage.

“The love and maturity we shared as a couple allowed us to get to know one another and grow emotionally to shape our future.”

“It wasn’t easy because our relatives didn’t have a good relationship. But with patience and time, we brought them together and became an example for younger generations.”


The couple shared their secret formula: love + maturity + mutual understanding.

“It is an honor and pride for us, Julio Cesar and Waldramina, to be awarded a Guinness World Records title, as it is the highest award the world recognizes,”

“It is indeed hard at the moment because of the pandemic affecting the world, but we don’t have a solution. We must first respect the rules and live our lives with love.

Despite all the difficulties and changes they have faced because of the pandemic, they are still filled with happiness and optimism. They eagerly await the day they can reunite with their loved ones and family.
