A 9 years old boy in a well attended wedding has married a 62-year-old woman in South Africa .
According to reports, in what many described as baffling, the boy, Saneie Masilela, agreed to tie the knot with Helen Shabangu, a 62-year-old mother of five.
Masilela was quoted to have proudly echoed his affection towards his wife despite their age gap. It is said that the boy made it clear that age is just a number when it comes to maters of the heart.
“I’m very happy I’ve got married to Helen but I will still take my education seriously and also I chose her because I love her,” he said.
Reports also said the young groom made his intention known to his mother who gave a 100% support. The wedding was a spectacle and many trooped the venue to see the wonders 21st century had to offer.
I have a question to ask, does this also not pass as Child marriage or that law goes against old men marrying young girls. Check them out below.
