A couple from Austin, Texas has officially broken the Guinness World Record for the oldest aggregate age of a married couple. 

At more than 211 years, no married couple is older than John and Charlotte Henderson combined. The pair has been married since 1939 and on Nov. 8 Charlotte celebrated her 105th birthday. John will celebrate his 107th birthday on Dec. 24. 

According to KHOU, the pair met while attending the University of Texas, where John played football and Charlotte was studying to become a teacher. The Texas Longhorn pride runs deep in the couple because for the last 10 years they have lived in Longhorn Village, a senior living facility designed for Texas alums and faculty. 

Their record was certified in late August.
