90-year old Saudi marries for first time

A 90-year-old Saudi man decided to end nearly a century of bachelorship and married in a massive party attended by all villagers and guests invited from nearby towns, a newspaper reported on Friday.

“It was a big wedding that was held in exceptional conditions given the groom’s age…it will be remembered for many years to come,” said Ahmed Ibrahim al Sulami, tribal chief in the western Saudi village of Shaab.

The groom, Khalil Al Sulami, told Kabar newspaper he would spend his honey moon at a five-star hotel in the nearby city of Qunfudah.

“I will never forget that night when I bid farewell to bachelorship,” he said, refusing to specify his bride’s age.
