We have witnessed a lot of romantic relationships where partners have a huge age difference. For example, popular Nollywood actress Regina Daniels married a husband Ned Nwoko who is 38 years older than her, just to mention a few. Indonesian social media has been buzzing with news of a controversial wedding ceremony in South Sulawesi, in which a 103-year-old Dutch colonial war veteran recently married a 27-year-old woman.
Photos of the unlikely couple on their wedding day have been doing the rounds online for every week now, sparking both outrage and humorous comments.
The elderly centenarian met the young lady while she was going through a breakup after finding out that her ex-boyfriend was dishonest on her. Comfort wound up becoming intimacy and one thing led to another, being ‘charmed’ by his understanding and experience in life, the young female found herself pregnant.
Apparently, what makes this all the greater perturbing is the fact that the 103-year-old man honestly watched his younger bride grow up since she was a baby, and her family used to be invited to his house during festive periods to rejoice together. Apparently, during her first marriage, her ex-husband became abusive closer to her prior to their divorce, which caused their separation.
