9 Year Old Wedding


A 9-year-old South African boy recently had a wedding ceremony with a 62-year-old woman.

It was actually the couple’s second ceremony — they originally wed last year when Sanele Masilela was eight.

Practically speaking, he and 62-year-old Helen Shabangu do not live together as man and wife.

Their non-legally binding union is actually part of a ritual meant to please Masilela’s ancestors.

But… the visuals are still unsettling, especially the couple’s kiss.
