MARDIN, Turkey -- The world's tallest man the tied knot Sunday. She barely reaches his waist.

Turkish farmer Sultan Kosen, who holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living man at 8 feet 3 inches, married a 20-year-old Syrian woman, Merve Dibo who is only 5 feet 8 inches.

Kosen, who also holds Guinness World Record for the biggest hands and feet, says he is truly happy to find love. "I have found the woman of my life after a long search. I am truly happy for that" he said.

Turkey, which has received more than 600,000 Syrian refugees, shares a 560-mile border with Syria and is a strong critic of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
