CNN — The world’s oldest living couple celebrated another major milestone when their senior living community in Austin, Texas, threw them a party for their 80th wedding anniversary.

John and Charlotte Henderson have an aggregate age of 211 years and 175 days, and a love story that has quite literally stood the test of time.

To celebrate their 80th year together, 106-year-old John picked up 105-year-old Charlotte in a 1920s Roadster — much like he did on their first date — with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

Friends and family gathered at Longhorn Village on Dec. 11 to celebrate the couple with food and a slideshow filled with photos of the couple over the years.

Jason Free, who helped his great-uncle and great-aunt get recognized by Guinness World Records in November as the world’s oldest living couple, told KXAN in Austin what makes them so special.

“They are a wonderful couple, and an example of a very happy couple — glad to be around each other, travel together and live life,” Free said.

The two met in class at The University of Texas in 1934 and married in 1939.
