  The world’s oldest living married couple revealed the secret to their 80-year marriage Tuesday — her patience.

  世界上最长寿的在世夫妇于本周二公布了他们80年婚姻的秘诀—她的耐心。

目前年龄最大的在世夫妻公布婚姻保鲜的秘诀

  “It’s thanks to my patience,” said 100-year-old wife Miyako Matsumoto of Japan.

  来自日本的100岁的松本宫子说:“多亏了我的耐心。”

  The Guinness World Records named Miyako and her husband, Masao Matsumoto, 108, the oldest living spouses by aggregate age.

  《吉尼斯世界纪录》称,宫子和她的108岁的丈夫松本正雄是在世累积年龄最大的夫妻。

  “I am so grateful that it brings me tears,” Miyako said as she and her husband posed with a framed certificate at the nursing home where they live.

  宫子和丈夫拿着装裱好的证书,在他们住的养老院拍照留念时说:“我感激得哭了。”

  The Matsumotos were both born in the Japanese city of Oita and introduced through an acquaintance. They were legally wed in 1937, though they never had a big wedding celebration, as Japan headed into war and the groom was sent overseas as a soldier.

  松本夫妻出生在日本大分市,是通过一位熟人介绍认识的。当时日本参战了,正雄被派往海外当兵。所以他们从未举行过盛大的婚礼,但他们于1937年合法结婚了。

  But they had a big family when he returned – raising five daughters who now range in age from 77 to 66. They also have 13 grandchildren, and their 25th great-grandchild was born last month.

  但当他回来时,他们有了一个大家庭,养大了5个女儿,如今最大的77岁,最小的也66岁了。他们还有13个孙子,上个月他们的第25个曾孙出生了。

  “They’ve entered the last chapter of their life,” said their daughter, Hiromi. “It was an honor [for them] to receive this award. I would love them to continue living a peaceful life.”

  他们的女儿宏美说:“他们已经进入了生命的最后阶段,获得这个奖项对他们来说是一种荣誉。我希望他们能继续过平静的生活。”

  For their 80th anniversary, staff at the couple’s nursing home threw them a big party – in place of the wedding they never had — with Miyako donning a regal red dress for a photo shoot.

  在他们结婚80周年之际,养老院的工作人员为他们举办了一场盛大的聚会,代替了他们从未举办过的婚礼,宫子穿着一件高贵的红色礼服拍了照。

  They still have a couple of years to go to beat the record for oldest married couple ever by aggregate age. That honor still belongs to Norwegians Karl and Gurdren Dolven who had a combined age of 210 years when Gurdrun died in 2004.

  他们还有几年的时间来打破历史上累积年龄最大的夫妇记录。这一荣誉仍然属于挪威的多文夫妇。2004年古尔德伦去世时,他们的年龄加起来是210岁。
