107 Year Old Woman Seeks Husband

January 12, 2009

China (ChattahBox) – A 107 year-old woman is out to prove to the world that it’s never too late to look for love as she sets out to find herself a husband, after a century of celibacy.

Wang Guiying spent her life avoiding being tied down to a man. Her childhood was spent in Guizhou, during a turbulent time where women were largely mistreated, being used most commonly as objects, and having few rights. After seeing her mother and other women of her family beaten by their husbands, she began to fear marriage.

“I often found my aunt crying in the woodshed after an attack. All the married people around there lived like that. Getting married was too frightening,” she admitted.

Instead, she moved on to run her own farm, working the fields to the incredible age of 74, before finally calling it quits, and moving in with a nephew.

But as she reaches her 108th year, she knows that her family will not be able to take care of her much longer, and so has decided to finally seek out a man who will become her husband. While she would like to find someone closer to her age, she realizes that a slightly younger fellow may be needed to take care of her, and so is hoping for a youngster of around 90 to agree to be her mate.

The local government was touched by her ordeal, and so have launched a search party, seeking out likely candidates from nearby nursing homes. In the meantime, Wang is hopeful.

“She believes that somewhere out there is a Mr. Right,” an official for the search party told reporters.
