A Nine-year-old Boy Got married to 62 years woman
A nine-year-old South African boy has become one of the world’s youngest grooms twice — tying the knot with his 62-year-old “wife” again.
The Daily Mail reported the second marriage service was this time held at the home of the blushing bride. Read 10 Celebrities’ cold sores you never know.
A mom was married to two men and she shared cake, toast, and a kiss with her youngest husband.
Last year, when the time had come for this boy from Tshwane to marry, his ancestors came to him at first vision and told him that he should marry.
To surprise his family, the groom had an aerial banner flown above their property reading “Martha will you marry me?” They were so happy about the engagement that they spent £500 on her wedding dress and spent another £1,000 on a big day.
The couple needed an official ceremony to satisfy the youngest child.
The boy’s family defended the ceremony they were subjecting him to. According to them, it was just a tradition and not legally binding.
Patience Masilela said her son Sanele was happy about the ceremony last year and wanted to participate this time as well.
The groom was very excited to wed his bride, making a statement that he would marry her again.
“After their wedding last year, people keep asking them if they would live together, sleep together, and have babies”. I always tell them that after their wedding things went back to normal and nothing changed.
The mother went on to explain her dedication to the village shaman’s advice for fear of bringing bad luck into their family.
The woman, who works at a recycling center, said: “I didn’t have a problem with it because I know it is what the ancestors wanted and it would make them happy.”
Young groom Sanele is not yet old enough to marry but hopes one day to do so with a woman who is his own age.
John said “I’m happy that I married Helen – but I will go to school and study hard. When I’m older, I will marry a lady my own age.”
“I chose Helen because I love her, and although we aren’t together all the time we meet at the dumping site where my mother works,” he added.
As a grandmother, bride Helen is old enough to be the father of the groom, who will marry the bride’s daughter.
Sanele’s marriage does not require him and his wife to live together.
What has happened to two people who were unfortunate enough to face societal pressures
Helen’s husband of 30 years and architect Alfred attended both the marriages, along with their five children.
The woman’s children are happy with her marriage, and she doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.
