A 64-year-old Nigerian woman, Erumena Amata, who many had ridiculed and told she was never going to see her soul mate in life has finally got what she wanted.
In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, the woman said that people told her she is just way above a woman any man would be interested in. Many people congratulated new bride. The woman said she is happy with the man who married her.
Even if a man comes, he wouldn’t be the spec
She added that people told her that even if a man comes calling, the person will be shorter in height or she will be 10 years older than the man.
According to her, God did it for her and put many people to shame. She revealed that her heartthrob is not only taller than she is, he is also way older.
I hoped every year
Erumena said that whenever her friends got married, she was happy. Every year, she always told herself that she would spend the year’s December in her husband’s house.
The woman stated that the most painful thing was that the child that was delivered in her presence grew up to get married and even had a kid of her own.
What affected me
Sixty-four-year-old Erumena said that her over-moralised lifestyle affected her as she was always trying to be perfect.
On her wedding day, she stated that she could not call her friends bridesmaids or flower girls because some of them are way older than she is. She called them maids of honour instead.
Erumena’s husband is a widower whose wife died 10 years ago and has a kid who is a medical doctor.
“So happy for her. May her marriage be fruitful.”
“Congrats auntie! So, so glad! May the Lord continue to bless your union.”
“This made me so happy.”
“This woman is so lively and young at heart.her voice is so strong like a 30 years ohhhh.you make sense abeg.so lively.”
“She is so beautiful and looks more like in her 50s. I celebrate with her.”
