A couple in China both over a century old are celebrating a milestone that is unreachable for many: 96 years of togetherness.
The 103-year-old wife moved in with her 102-year-old husband when she was six-years-old after her parents died, reported Huanqiu
The wife Wei Basao and her husband, Wei Qishou, now spend time cultivating their vegetable garden, and walking round their village hand in hand and take a daily dram infused with Chinese herbs, reports the Times.
According to this age old tradition "tongyangxi", the wife was given to a family after she was orphaned with her eventually marrying one of the sons. 
Tongyangxi, Mandarin for "child raised as a daughter-in-law".
The two despite not being very well off always made sure their family was fed. They have five sons and a daughter who visit them as much as possible. 
The couple is famous in their village. They are courteous, and live in harmony, and they've never been seen quarreling with each other.
