A 78-year-old man from Indonesia who married a 17-year-old girl has decided to part ways with his wife within 22 days of their wedding.
The couple, named Abah Sarna, 78, and his wife Noni Navita, 17, who got married last month filed for separation last week. The newlyweds had gained a lot of attention because of their vast age difference.
When Abah sent a separate letter to Noni, her family was left in sh-ock as they did not find any problems in the relationship.
“I was sh-ocked because there was no ‘wind and st-orm’, it suddenly became like this,” Noni’s sister Iyan was quoted as saying by the Harian Metro.
“Our family has no problem with Abah Sarna. However, the problem came from Abah Sarna and his family who seemed to object to the marriage,” she added.
There were so-called that the couple parted ways because Noni was pregnant before their marriage, however, Iyan denied the cla!ms. Abah had given RM 2,819 (Rs 50,000) along with a motorcycle, mattress, and closet to Noni. The do-wry had also caught the attention of social media users as it had to be transported by truck.
In another incident, an Indonesian man married both his girlfriends at the same time as he did not want to hu-rt them. Photos from the wedding ceremony which took place in Airtarap, Kalimantan, had gone viral in August last year.
The man had paid a handsome amount as d-owry to the brides’ families. In Indonesia, it is a common practice for the groom to pay a d-owry to the bride’s family.
