-- A U.K. couple is taking love to the limit; age limit, that is.
Doreen Luckie, 91, is engaged to her 102-year-old boyfriend, George Kirby, and when the pair wed this June their combined age will be 194, potentially making them the oldest newlyweds in the world.
"I didn’t think that was possible. Because you hear so many people living into their hundreds now, and lots of people in their nineties, I thought, ‘Well, we can’t be the only ones,’” Luckie told Metro UK, which first reported the story.
While Luckie and Kirby have submitted their application for the record, they will still need to submit evidence from the day of the marriage for review.
The organization is a stickler for paperwork.
When Lillian Hartley and Allan Marks of Indio, California, wed in 2012 with more than 193 combined years under their belts, many news outlets, including ABC News, reported the couple as having broken the previous record set by a French couple in 2002.
But, it turned out, Hartley and Marks may have been too distracted by their honeymoon.
"Lillian and Allan were never recognized as it seems they never submitted a formal application," Ott said. "All record attempts must be submitted through our application process in order to be recognized."
Luckie and Kirby will be married at their residence, the Langham Hotel, owned by Kirby's son, in Eastbourne, East Sussex June 13.
