At 115 years of age, Emma Morano is not just the oldest person in Europe, she is also the fifth oldest living person in the world. Emma has an advice for ladies who want to live long like her, she says they should avoid men. Emma herself had been married once, in 1938, but it ended after the death of her young son.
After that she had “plenty of suitors but she refused to settle down for a second time, “I didn’t want to be dominated by anyone, I just avoid them”.
Her action has obviously paid off as she has lived to the ripe age of 115 in sound body and mind. Staying single (with a steady diet of raw eggs, of course) has allowed her to continue kicking it at the ripe old age of 115.
According to the New York Times, Morano still lives alone, and her doctor (who visits once a month “just to check in”) declared that she’s generally in good health.
