9-Year-Old Boy Marries A 63-Year-Old Woman; Villagers Feel Violated

Strange things keep happening in the world and we are most of the time left speechless or bound of words because of them. This incident  is much more than shocking. 

A young schoolboy Saneie Masilela married a 62-year- old woman named Helen. This incident took place in the village Ximhungwe in Mpumalanga of South Africa. The boy became the youngest groom twice in the history of human beings, as he remarried her. There had been an informal ceremony last year as well. The villagers have described it as sickening.

It was a ritual as Saneie was told by his dead ancestors to get married. They believe if they wouldn't have fulfilled the wish of the dead then something bad would have happened to Saneie's family.

As the boy told his parents the absurd wish, to my horror they agreed and even chipped £500 for the bride and £1000 for the ceremony. Even though people have been asking questions from them such as "Will the two of them sleep together or have babies?'' The boy's mother keeps telling them that everything has gone back to normal after the wedding.

6. The boy wishes to get married again when he grows up.
