article image9-year-old boy marries 62-year-old woman

By Owen Weldon     Jul 21, 2014 in Odd News
For the second time Saneie Masilela, 9, became the world's youngest groom after he remarried the 62-year-old woman he married last year.
Saneie was dressed in a silvery tuxedo as he held the hand of Heln Shabangu, a mother of five with kids between the ages of 28-38, as they repeated their vows a year on in front of around 100 guests, according to Standard Media.
According to Mirror, Saneie said that he did this to make the marriage official, but other people in Ximhungwe described it as sickening.
According to NY Post, the wedding was part of a local tradition, and the boy's mother has been fully supportive. Saneie believes that his dead ancestors wanted the marriage to happen. His mother said that she knows that this is what his ancestors wanted, and if they didn't do what Saneie wanted, then they believed something would have happened in the family.
Alfred, Shabangu's husband of 30 years, said that he approves of the marriage too, as well as their kids. Alfred said that he and his wife's kids do not care what other people think.
Saneie said that he's happy that he pleased his ancestors, but he will not be letting the marriage get in the way of his future, saying that eventually he will marry someone his own age when he is older.
