Propos­ing mar­riage re­quires a huge leap of faith for most cou­ples, but a Brazil­ian cou­ple is tak­ing that big step in hopes of be­ing de­clared the “world’s small­est cou­ple.”

For the past eight years, Paulo Gabriel da Silva Bar­ros, of Itapeva, has been dat­ing Katyu­cia Hoshino. The two have a lot in com­mon, in­clud­ing that they both have dwarfism. Bar­ros, 30, is 34.8 inches tall while Hoshino, 26, is slightly taller at 35.2 inches. The cou­ple also share the dream of be­ing de­clared the “world’s small­est cou­ple” by Guin­ness World Records.

Height-wise, they beat out cur­rent record hold­ers Dou­glas Maistre Breger da Silva and Clau­dia Pereira Rocha of Cu­ritiba, Brazil, who are 35 inches and 36 inches re­spec­tively. But Bar­ros and Hoshino can’t of­fi­cially ap­ply for con­sid­er­a­tion un­less they are hitched. Pre­vi­ously, Hoshino has taken a “wait and see” ap­proach to­wards mar­riage, but Bar­ros can’t wait any longer, ac­cord­ing to Bar­croft TV. He re­cently gath­ered some fam­ily and friends at a sushi res­tau­rant and tried to hook his sweetie for life. Huff­in­g­ton Post
