'At least no one can accuse them of rushing things.

When Forrest Lunsway asked his sweetheart, Rose Pollard, to marry him nearly 30 years ago, she agreed — but only when he turned 100 years old.

Rose, 90, proved true to her word when she married Forrest last month in Orange County, Calif., on the groom’s 100th birthday.

The wedding makes them the oldest couple to ever marry, with a combined age of nearly two centuries. They are planning to apply for a Guinness World Record — they’re 82 days older than the French couple who currently hold the title.

“Take your time and get to know one another,” Rose told The Daily when asked for relationship advice. “Get to know if you like all the things that person stands for. If they have the same values.”

In this case, those values include a shared passion for ballroom dancing.

The newlyweds rarely miss a dance at the Dana Point Senior Center, where they were married. It’s physical activity that Forrest believes has kept him alive.'
