9 Year Old Boy Marries 62 Year Old Woman

Post by General Mackevili » Mon Jul 21, 2014 6:48 pm

Ewwwwwww......true story..... :bad:

I think the tone of the article is interesting. Seems to just take it as an amusing story, or 'weird,' as they put it.

Would this article have the same tone if it were a 9 year old GIRL marrying a 62 year old MAN???

It was the perfect day for a wedding, but maybe not the perfect wedding.

A 62-year-old woman, Helen Shabangu, in South Africa has married a 9-year-old boy, Saneie Masilela.

To make matters even weirder, the newly married couple were watched by the bride's long-term husband, Alfred Shabangu, 66.

The couple have five children.

The ceremony took place in Ximhungwe, northeastern South Africa.

The Shabangus claim the wedding took place after they were told by dead ancestors to go ahead with the ceremony.

"My kids and I are happy because we don't have a problem with her marrying the boy — and I don't care what other people say," she said.

The young groom said he also wanted another wedding when he is older.

"I'm happy that I married Helen but I will go to school and study hard," he said, according to The Mirror.

"I'm very happy that the boy chose me and my family support and understand that it is part of making ancestors happy," the 62-year-old bride said.

I do my best not to judge other cultures I don't know or understand, but sometimes I'll just go mouth agape.

As Stroppy says, at least the dead ancestors are happy.

Sickening, no matter what gender they are.
Are there many of those female pedos around ?

Disgusting. How this is not extreme child abuse I don't know. Some cultures are best left for the history books.

Not looking to play devil's advocate, but is there anything to suggest this marriage would be a ... well ... 'full and complete' marriage?

Do you mean consummate?
I have no idea. The groom boy does kiss the bride but he also said he would focus on school. Where is vlad when we need him to enlighten us about his country's folk beliefs?

Looking back at the picture, she has incredibly smooth looking, flawless skin and complexion for a 62-yo woman. Or it's just make-up doing its magic.

Yes, I meant gettin' it orn. I also was skeptical about her being 62, although that hardly seems the point.
