They say "No one is too old to get married"!

Far in Jordan's northern governorate of Irbid, the 103-year-old man, Aref Al Jdayah, got married on Monday evening, March 9.

"He may be old, yet his health condition is so good," according to Roya's correspondent, who attended the marriage ceremony that day.

"Marriage is lawful. My wife died and it's normal that a man can't live without a wife," the man said happily.

"I hope she would be good for me and we would live happily ever after," he added.

Experts explain that an elderly man may need a wife because he may feel lonely and needs someone to take care of him.
