(Malyasia) A 33-year-old Malaysian man and a 104-year-old woman who married several months ago believe that it was "God's will" that they met.
"It may seem strange to those who don't understand us but I have found peace since we got married two months ago," said groom Muhammad Noor Che Musa in the Malay-language Harian Metro.
Muhammad was once a lodger in the house of Wook Kundor. He said that his motives were pure in the marriage.
"I know society is cynical but I didn't marry Wook for her money. She is poor," he said. "Her only asset is her deep religious knowledge. Through her, I can deepen my knowledge of the religion."
Despite the 71-year age difference and her own advancing years, Wook remains optimistic toward the future of the relationship.
"I hope this marriage will last," she said. "I ask that people view our marriage in a positive light as we have not done anything that is forbidden by God."
There is no word if the couple maintained a gift registry, or where they honeymooned.
