A 25-year-old man has revealed his plans to marry his 85-year-old fiancée, shocking his family.
When Muima was seeking for a place to rent while pursuing his education, he met his older sweetheart Thereza.
Thereza became his landlady, and he moved into her Kenyan home after paying her rent.
Muima and Thereza became friends, and she playfully referred to him as her husband, which he dismissed, but as time passed, both of them began to fall in love.
Afrimax English spoke with Muima who said:
“The way she behaved and treated (me) pushed me to love her and though she is an old woman and in reality, she could be my grandmother but I love her.”
“This is my choice. This is my happiness, as anyone else has theirs. Before pleasing others, first, please yourself and decide not based on anyone else’s opinions,”
Thereza, for one, said she isn’t ashamed of her relationship with Muima despite having grandkids who are older.
“I have eight children and 20 grandchildren. According to my boyfriend’s age, he could be my fifth grandchild. He loves me and I love him. I am ready to put on the wedding dress and ring.”
Muima is willing to pay his girlfriend’s children the bride price of 12 cows.
He claimed that he fell in love with the grandma after being in a series of tumultuous relationships.
Thereza isn’t completely dismissing the possibility of starting a family with her youthful partner. She expressed hope by stating that the Bible contains examples of aged mothers giving birth.
“I’ll never choose any girl over this one. I pray she won’t die before me, “Muima added.
