Many people believe that love is blind and this assertion comes from witnessing the most unlikely couples appearing to be in love with each other. A man claims he found love with a woman 48 years older than him.
In most parts of the world, it is common for ladies to prefer dating men that are older than them. However, it is starting to become a trend for younger men to go for elderly women.
There have also lately been several reports of young black men dating and getting married to elderly white women.
Briefly.co.za recently came across a photo of a young man looking cosy with his elderly lover.
Zimbabwehuchi.com reported that the young man is a 31-year-old Nigerian while his bride is a 79-year-old woman. They were also said to have tied the knot.
Photos of the couple were also shared on social media by a Twitter user identified as @Phunkey_, and she did not seem too happy about their union.
See her tweet below:
Despite the stigma attached to African men marrying older women, we wish them a happy union.
