After 82 years of marriage, Nicholas and Rafaela Ordaz know a thing or two about love and relationships.

The Californian couple, who just celebrated their 82nd wedding anniversary, have revealed the secrets to a long, loving marriage. 

And their relationship advice is surprisingly simple:

1. Have respect for one another

2. Show plenty of affection

3. Don’t sweat the small stuff

The pair who said "I do" way back in 1934 (during the Great Depression), have been married so long there is not even a traditional gift to give, but they are on their way to having the longest marriage ever documented and breaking the current Guinness World Record.

According to the Guinness World Records, US couple Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher had been married for 86 years and 290 days as of February 27, 2011, when Mr Fisher passed away.
