97-Year-Old Iraqi Dies 6 Months After Marrying Young Girl
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Thursday, January 30, 2014

Posted on 01/31/2014 1:43:41 PM PST by nickcarraway

a 97-year-old Iraqi man who hit headlines last year for marrying a young girl died at his home in the Arab country nearly six months after his latest marriage.

Musli Mohammed Al Majmai triggered controversy in Iraq and other countries when he wedded a girl who was nearly 70 years younger than him.

Two of his grandsons wedded on the same day in their home province of Saladin north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad in July 2013.

Newspapers said Al Majmai had 325 children, grand children and great grand children.

... a 97 year old dirty old man

He could have been getting his diapers changed ..... then again, at his age, that might have been pretty exciting.

I wouldn’t call a 27 year old woman a “young girl”.

Doc: "Bernie, you're 97 and you just married a 25-year-old woman! Aren't you worried about death from exhaustion?"

Bernie: "It's OK, Doc. If she dies, she dies."

True, though I'd still question how much pressure she was under to do that. She could be the Arab - Anna Nicole Smith.

It took the undertaker 3 days to get the smile off his face and another week to get the lid on the coffin!

erm . . . if the "young girl" is "nearly 70 years younger," that makes her 27 or older.

Grandpa had outlived 4 wives, and at age 102 was days away from marrying a pretty 27 year old, when one of his grandsons approached him and asked,

“Uh...Grandpa, Aren’t you a bit concerned about the Honeymoon?”

“Why?” Grandpa responded.

Well, you know....about a heart attack or something...., said the grandson.

Without hesitation, Grandpa replies, “If she dies, she dies....”

“he wedded a girl who was nearly 70 years younger than him”

Would that put her in her late 20s or early 30s? That is hardly a girl.

97-year-old Iraqi man ... wedded a girl who was nearly 70 years younger

If accurate, this means the "young girl" was at least 28 years old.

I’m reminded of a line from Love and Death regarding the demise of Countess Alexandrovna’s husband;
Uncle-”It’s said her husband the Count died in her arms trying to satisfy her prodigious sexual desires”.
Boris-”No kidding. Died smiling, I bet”,
