My father married 35-year-old woman to avert the wrath of God—Son of 97-year-old groom defends father
A 41year-old son of an alleged 97 year old man who tied the knot with a 35 year old lady, Akua Asabea Gyan over the weekend has defended his father for marrying a woman who could be his granddaughter.
Social media went wild after a video surfaced online with a 97 year old man marrying a young lady in an undisclosed place at Western Region.
The viral photos and video captured an aged groom and his young bride at their traditional marriage ceremony styled in colourful kente outfits.
The visuals garnered mixed reactions with netizens saying the wife could qualify as the groom’s granddaughter and frowned on the marriage.
However, a son of the groom, identified as Gyan Formula yesterday cleared the misconception about the marriage during a media interview.
He explained that his 97 year father married the 35 year old Asabea Gyan since they loved each other.
Gyan Formula stated that his father and the woman had been together for about 11 years and were blessed with four kids.
“My father married such a young woman because she makes him happy and you know happiness is paramount in life that is why we supported him to marry his young bride,” he added
According to him, the ceremony over the weekend was just to officiate their union.
“My father is a cocoa farmer and herbalist. He is very strong but has been worried about the fact that he will pass on without marrying the lady. He believes that God will question him for having children with a woman he is not married to,” he said.
Touching on his relationship with his father’s wife, the 41-year-old man stated that his siblings and him have taken Asabea Gyan as their mother and respect her for her bold decision to stay glued to their father.
He revealed that his father became lonely in life after his mother passed away in 1999 and gained happiness when Asabea came to his path.
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old woman has also praised the bedroom prowess of her newly wedded husband who is 97 years of age.
Asabea Gyan noted that Agya Kwasi Gyan was skillful in bed and sometimes wondered whether the man was actually old.
“My husband performs better in bed than most young men, mind you he is a herbalist and falls on medicines to keep him physical and $3xual stamina intact,” she added.
Asabea Gyan said the criticism from people hold no relevance in her marriage so far as her husband performs his manly duties right.
She further indicated that Mr Gyan was very Powerful and responsible, thus would forever love him.
