A 64-year-old woman identified as Erumena Amata has for the first time in her life married despite people’s discouragement.
The 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.
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.
Erumena said that whenever her friends got married, she was happy.
Every year, she always tells 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.
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.
