This 9 year old kid Saneie Masilela has become the world’s youngest groom for the second time after re-marrying the 62 year old woman he tied knot with in 2013 .Sanele Masilela and Helen Shabangu of Tshwane, South Africa were married in 2013, claiming that it was an order from their dead ancestors. The renewing of the vows was required by a local tradition over there which states a wedding ceremony need to be repeated at the bride’s home in order to make it official wedding, according to Irish website, Her.ie.
Although the two are married in 2013, the boy’s mother, Patience, explained in a Buzzfeed interview, the union is only for their dead ancestors and the couple doesn’t live together & they don’t have any attraction towards each other or engage in any sexual relations. “I know it’s what the ancestors wanted. If we hadn’t done what my son had asked, then something bad would have happened in the family,” she said.
The young boy had said in the interview about the matter: “I’m happy that I married Helen, but I will go to school and study hard. When I’m older, I will marry a lady my own age.”
