112yr Old Somali Man Marries 17yr Old

This pic symbolizes how I read this story. Two kids...one mentally, the other physically.

“I didn’t force her, but used my experience to convince her of my love; and then we agreed to marry,” Dore continued, adding that he had waited for his wife to grow up first before proposing to her.

A 112-year-old Somali man has married a 17-year-old girl, BBC reported on Thursday.

Ahmed Muhamed Dore already has 18 children from five wives. He said he would like to have more children with his new teenage wife, Safia Abdulleh, who is young enough to be his great-great-granddaughter.
