Two centenarians in Vietnam are looking to break a record for the longest marriage in the world.

Huynh Van Lac, 110, and his wife Nguyen Thi Lanh, 106, broke the national record for their marriage of 82 years last week, Le Truong Truong An, director of Vietnam Records Book Centre, said. ''We will submit the longest recorded marriage to the Guinness World Records after finishing all the paperwork,'' he said.

Mr Lac said the secret to his marriage was knowing how to live with each other and avoid quarrels. ''People should know how to share their happiness and sadness with each other,'' he said. 

According to Guinness World Records, Herbert Fisher and Zelmyra Fisher from the US were married for 86 years.
