Tallest Living Married Couple -
Laurie and Wayne Hallquist set world record
 STOCKTON, Calif., USA--Wayne and Laurie Hallquist, who live in Stockton, California, measure a combined 13 feet, 4 inches, or 407.4 centimeters; he stands 6 feet 10.4 inches, she 6 feet 5.95 inches - setting the new world record for the Tallest Living Married Couple.

Laurie is a realtor for Prudential California Realty, using the slogan Head and Shoulders Above the Rest, while Wayne is is a telecommunications engineer.
They have no children.

The Hallquists said that when they met at a church singles club in 2003, they could tell that others around them were sizing up a possible love affair because of their height.

  "She walked in, everyone looked at her, then they looked at me," Wayne said.

   But while Wayne said it was love at first sight for him, Laurie their first meeting came up short.
  "He talked about the size of my hands and feet, which is kind of a no-no," said Laurie, 46. "And then the second time we had a chance to talk, I figured out he was a really good guy."

Guinness World Records previously listed a couple in England -- Wilco and Keisha van Kleef-Bolton -- as the world's tallest couple at a combined height of 13 feet, 3 inches.

Laurie, a former college basketball player who now works as a realtor, said she dated shorter men before Wayne, including one "kind of macho" guy who stood 5-foot-7.
   She described that pairing as "a little awkward" and said that she likes looking up to her husband -- at least physically.

"There are so many shows about little people," the 57-year-old Wayne said. "I think we'd make great friends or neighbors on one of those shows."

The Guinness World Record holder for the tallest man in medical history is Robert Pershing Wadlow; when he was last measured on June 27, 1940, was found to be 2.72 m (8 ft 11.1 in) tall.
