In Accra, Ghana, a 96-year-old man married a 93-year-old woman. The website Starr Fm Online reports about it.
James K. Andorful and his fiancée, Margaret Manuel, met in the 1960s. They lived together for more than 50 years and raised nine children, but only now they decided to register a marriage.
The ceremony took place at the temple of the popular Pentecost Church in Ghana. Both the groom and the bride came to the altar in white robes. The priest seized the opportunity and condemned the increasing number of divorces. According to him, in the past, marriages were longer, because people were content with what they have and understood each other. He cited a couple of centenarians as an example: “If a couple is able to live 50 years under one roof, it means that they understand each other.
In 2016, it was reported that a 114-year-old woman and a 71-year-old man, who met in a nursing home, were married in China. The long-liver hesitated for a long time before accepting the offer, but the groom did not give up.
