8-Year-Old Boy Marries 61-Year-Old Woman


This eight-year-old boy doesn’t look too pleased even though it was apparently his idea to ‘marry’ a 61-year-old woman at the behest of his ancestors. Little Sanele Masilela got hitched to Helen Shabangu, who also didn’t look too happy with her involvement in the ceremony. The older woman has five children and is already married but she is not in danger of breaking any polygamy laws because her latest union is just a ritual. ‘I’m married and have five kids of my own, but I know that this is what the ancestors wanted – and now they are happy,’ said Mrs Shabangu.” w/ photos
