Child bridegroom: Eight-year-old boy marries 61-year-old woman after 'dead ancestors told him to tie the knot'
An eight-year-old schoolboy has married a 61-year-old woman because the ghost of his dead ancestor told him to. Sanele Masilela tied the knot with Helen Shabangu, who is already married and a mother-of-five.
The boy, from Tshwane, South Africa, said he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed and his family, fearing divine retribution, forked out for a wedding.
They paid £500 for the bride and a further £1,000 for the big day, which was organised in just two months.
Dressed in a bow tie and tiny silver suit, little Sanele, the youngest of five children, exchanged rings in front of 100 guests and even puckered up for a kiss It's already shocked the community but the family has defended the ceremony, saying it was just a ritual and not legally binding.ter | DailyMail on Facebook

If you support gay “marriage”, try not to act grossed out.
“All love is equal”, right?
Mazel tov to them! (Or maybe mazel toddler?)
There are no words. :/
If your groom is running around trying to pick up all the rice people threw at you, you might have picked too young a groom.
If the best man toasted with a juice box, you might have picked too young a groom.
If the groom needs a nap between the wedding and the reception, you might have picked too young a groom. (Well, some brides it might be because she picked too old a groom, and he needs a nap)
They have a registry at Toy ‘R Us.
Neither one looks too happy with the arrangement. Even the guests look like what the hey.
Well, I do hear women say all the good men are taken or gay. Or in second grade.
If you have to cut up your husband’s steak at the wedding reception, you mau have picked too young a groom.
Pretty soon they are going to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet in the house. The groom’s feet.
The sad part is they’ve been dating for 5 years, and she finally gave him an ultimatum, that they had to get married, because she isn’t getting any younger.
If you have a physique like Moosechelle, you did pick too young a groom.
He wanted to ask her dad’s permission, but he isn’t around anymore.
Stop it!!!! My sides hurt!
Sometimes a girl’s got to take what she can get.
‘Twas ever thus...
You’re on a roll! ROTFLOL
That’s one unhappy looking boy.
