8yr Old Boy Marries 61yr Old Woman in Zimbabwe

8-Year-Old Boy Marries 61-Year-Old Woman in Zimbabwe - The boy’s aunt, Patience Masilela (46), explained why the wedding took place. She said: The boy was named after his late grandfather who never had a white wedding, so the ancestors told the boy to get married and he chose Helen to be his bride.
The family took his desire to get married very seriously. They paid for the bride in March last year and spent a lot on the wedding because they believed it was what the ancestors wanted. The bride said: 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. It is a ritual. We are just playing now, but it is a sign that he will get married one day. The young groom said: I told my mother that I wanted to get married because I really did want to. I chose her because I love her and I’m happy that I married her – but I will go to school and study hard...
