A 16-year-old boy named Selamat Riayadi has married his 71-year-old sweetheart, Rohaya in Indonesia after the drunk in love couple threatened to kill themselves if their families blocked their union.
Their marriage is not believed to be motivated by money, as both newlyweds are equally poor.
Selamat’s family made a dowry payment to Rohaya’s family of 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah, worth about £11.50 (N4,800).
A video from their wedding shows the young groom put his face in his hands as the union is proclaimed, his expression unreadable. His new wife sits quietly beside him as the wedding guests go wild with delight.
