When Hazi Abdu Noor was widowed six years ago he told his family to find him a new wife. Their mission was successful when Noor married on Sunday at the age of 120. His wife is 60.
An Indian widower who has married for the second time is the oldest groom in the world, at the ripe young age of 120. On Sunday Hazi Abdu Noor tied the knot with a woman half his age, 60-year-old Samoi Bibi, in a ceremony attended by 500 people.
Noor of Satghori, a remote village in north-eastern India, claims he is four years older than his official documentation, saying “My age in the voter list is 116 years. But actually I am 120 years old” the Times of India reports.Noor tasked his family with finding him a new wife following the death of his first wife six years ago. His son Hazi Azir Uddin admitted “It was not an easy job to find a bride for a 100-year-old. However, by the grace of god, we have found a new mother, though she's half his age. She was married once early in life. Her husband died and she has no children."According to Believe it or Not, the oldest recorded bridegroom prior to Noor’s wedding was Pan Xiting, from Wenzhou City in China, who married at age 106. Siasat cites the Guinness Book of Records stating the oldest living man as 114-year-old Jiroemon Kimura from Japan, but Noor may possibly exceed him in years if he really is 120.
