ISTANBUL – Adbullah (112) and Elif (110) Adigüzel from the Central Turkish village of Arguvan have been married for ninety years, according to a report in today’s daily paper Radikal.
The couple met during the Ottoman era and they say they married out of love. They had 10 children and the number of grand- and great-grandchildren has reached 113. The couple, who didn’t let go of each other’s hand during the interview with the newspaper, believes that the secret of their long relationship is that they always loved and trusted each other. Their longevity is due to the healthy food in the village, Elif thinks. They live with their youngest child, a son of almost seventy.
