Guinness World Records Announces "Tallest Living Married Couple"

Every marriage has its ups and downs, but Wayne and Laurie Hallquist's blessed union may have presently peaked. The Stockton, California, pair was just included into the Guinness World Records for being the tallest married couple on earth.

Wayne, who stands 6-foot-10.4 inches tall, and Laurie, who reaches almost 6-foot-6 inches, was in New York for Guinness World Records Day, where the skyscraping sweethearts were privileged and offered with an official certificate from the organization.

"We're excited and proud," Laurie said. "Representing the U.S. in this year's Guinness World Records Day is quite a excitement."

The Hallquists met at a singles event at their church seven years ago, and exchanged wedding vows later on. Aside from towering over the rest of the world, the pair enjoys collecting classic cars, boating, and sleeping in a 7-foot long bed.

The previous record-holders for Tallest Married Couple were Wilco and Keisha van Kleef-Bolton, whose shared height reached 13.33 feet. It looks as though the Hallquists had them beat by a nose.
