July 6, 2013

Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie said he made sure his wedding to 22-year-old wife Muna Mukhlif al-Jubur was on the same day as his two grandsons got married
A 92-year-old Iraqi farmer has married a woman 70 years his junior in a triple wedding ceremony with his two teenage grandsons. Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie married his 22-year-old bride Muna Mukhlif al-Juburi in a four-hour ceremony.

His grandsons, aged 16 and 17, also got married in the ceremony north of Baghdad on Thursday, according to AFP.

Mr Mujamaie said the special day had been long-awaited as his grandsons’ weddings had been postponed several times to coincide with his marriage ceremony.

He told AFP: ‘I am so happy to get married with my grandsons,’ Mr Mujamaie told AFP after the four-hour ceremony. ‘I feel like a 20-year-old!’

Mr Mujamaie had raised 16 children in his home village of Gubban with his first wife, which lies just south of the central Iraqi city of Samarra.
His second marriage comes three years after his wife died.

The four-hour ceremony included musical and dance performances and celebratory gunfire. Local tribal and religious leaders attended the triple celebration.
