1. The record for tallest married couple is relationship goals.

Sun Mingming, and his wife Xu Yan, of China, was certified as the world’s tallest couple by Guinness World Records in 2016, with their combined height of nearly 13 feet and 11 inches.  At 7 feet 9 inches tall, Sun easily towers over everyone else who is in the room. Xu, who stands just shy of 6 feet 2 inches tall, stands above most people in the room. You may be curious about Yao Ming. Just so you know, the former NBA center for the Houston Rockets is one of China’s most famous tall people. However, he is 7 feet 6 inches tall. 

The couple had married back in 2013 in Beijing, and both are athletes, not surprisingly enough. Sun, who is 33 years old, plays basketball, while his wife, 29 years old, is a handball player. The fortunate couple offered their recipe for a happy and trusting marriage, telling the records keeping group, “No one is perfect. Therefore you need to support one another daily.” I guess you won’t be finding any step ladders or footstools in their home.
