A man believed to hold the record for the world’s longest marriage has died at the incredible age of 110

Karam Chand, of Bradford, died on Friday after 90 years of marriage to his wife Kartari.

The pair, who tied the knot in India in 1925 moved to England 40 years later, have eight children and 27 grandchildren.

Mr Chand and his wife Kartari, 103, became celebrities last year following their whopping 90th wedding anniversary. The couple never argued, according to their family.

Karam was born in 1905 into a farming family in the Punjab during the height of the British Raj, at a time when it took six weeks to reach India via the Suez Canal.

He had an arranged marriage to Kartari and they tied the knot in a Sikh ceremony in 1925.

Mrs Chand, who is 103, is said to be a “bit shocked” by her husband’s death, but will be OK, her son Paul said.
