We all dream, and if we all acted on them, just imagine what this already fucked up world would be like. Nothing about this is mature or right, regardless of the culture.

Maturity and wisdom comes with experience, and no human being at 8 years of age has that.

Thank you. If it's not an issue of gay bashing, which most non-gays here openly empathize with, don't expect much understanding from the posters here.

If one of your ancestors asked you to marry someone who was over 50 years older than you, would you do it? Or would you let your kids do it, is the better question. Well, in the case of this 8-year-old child, Sanele Masilela, decided to jump the broom with 61-year-old, Helen Shabangu, because the ghost of his dead grandfather told him to, according to the Daily Mail.

The child, of Tshwane, South Africa, and woman had an actual ceremony of the wedding, which was planned in two months, because he feared that if they did not get married he would be cursed. Masiela is already married and has five children. They did not sign a marriage certificate, so their marriage is not legal.



His mother, Patience Masilela, claims that his grandfather never had a wedding, so he wanted Sanele to do so. And he married Helen “because he loved her.”



“By doing this we made the ancestors happy,” Patience said. “If we hadn’t done what my son had asked then something bad would have happened in the family. I didn’t have a problem with it because I know it’s what the ancestors wanted and it would make them happy.”

“I’m happy that I married Helen – but I will go to school and study hard,” said Sanele. “When I’m older I will marry a lady my own age.”

What do you guys think? Was he being respectful of his grandfather’s wishes or was this just creepy?
It's there culture and it appears as though she's more of a mother figure than a wife. She's already married and he said that he'll marry a woman his own age.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

What does that have to do with this thread?

Re: An 8 Year Old Boy Marries a 61 Year Old Woman

Meh...I've read updates on it... It's their culture; the marriage isn't "real"; it was just a ritual. There's no sex / molestation involved. They don't even live together.

If you think the kiss was sexual then yes but some of you all need to get a grip.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.

Re: An 8 Year Old Boy Marries a 61 Year Old Woman

it's not a sexual relationship. it's not even an emotional attachment. just a cultural ritual, geez.
