A 101 year old Russian woman married a 60 year old man in Kudymkar.

Proving age is no barrier to love Martha Plotnikova married Athanasius Harin in early September after they met in a retirement home in which they were both living.

Martha had problems with her health but life with her husband Athanasius has apparently rejuvenated her. 

Martha lived through World War II which started when she was in her late twenties, when her new husband had still to be born.

Natalia Belova, manager of the retirement home said: "They lived in different parts of the retirement home, she lived in the women's section, he in the men's. All the spare time that he had, he spent in her room. They sang songs, talked. And on the 3rd September 2014 we visited the registry office and registered their marriage. Now they are husband and wife."
