Old Bag Marries Stupid, Really Young Girl
For all you old bags out there that have yet to marry and regularly have cat dress up night with your baker’s dozen of cats, there’s still hope! In what is one of the strangest bits of news to come across my eyes, a 112-year-old Somali man married a 17 year old girl! Hugh Hefner has nothing on this leathery dinosaur!
According to London’s Telegraph, a crowd of hundreds attended the wedding between Ahmed Muhamed Dore and Safia Abdulleh in Guriceel, Somalia. Ahmed was quoted as saying, “Today God helped me realize my dream.”
Ahmed and his “lucky” bride are from the same village and said that he waited for her to grow up before proposing (weird). He said: “I didn’t force her, but used my experience to convince her of my love, and then we agreed to marry.” Even weirder.
The bride’s family said she’s happy with her new husband. In this writer’s opinion, she’s probably happy only because her family got a chicken and a bag of rice in exchange for, well, their own damn daughter.
He already has 18 children by his other five wives.
P.S. Would this even be legal in some US states?
