October 30, 2009

Somalia (ChattahBox) – A Somali man who claims to be 112 has married a 17-year-old girl in the first wedding of it’s kind for the region in more than a century.

Ahmed Muhamed Dore reportedly have five other wives of various ages, and has eighteen children from those marriages.

Now, he has married Safia Abdulleh of Guriceel, the village where they both live. According to Dore, he has been waiting for years for the girl to ‘grow up’, in order to marry her.

“I didn’t force her, but used my experience to convince her of my love, and then we agreed to marry,” he said.

While his claimed age is a bit dubious, if accurate he would be 92 years her senior.
