New Zealand’s longest-married couple celebrate 100 years 24 May 2016
Family First Comment: Our longest married couple are both 100 years old this year – Mr this month, and Mrs beginning of next month. Two letters from the Queen!
So that makes them the OLDEST & the LONGEST married couple in NZ 🙂

The country’s longest-married couple are about to notch up yet another milestone.

Together for 81 years, Jeram and Ganga Ravji of Mt Roskill were named New Zealand’s longest-married couple by lobby group Family First earlier this year.

Now they are about to become a couple of centenarians.

On June 6 Ganga Ravji will turn 100 – barely a month after her husband.

Four generations of the family now live in New Zealand but the path to a century has not been an easy road for the couple.
