A young man aged 25 years has shocked many after disclosing his plans to tie the knot with his 85-year-old girlfriend.
The lovebirds are madly in love and plan to hold a wedding soon to declare their union officially.
This is my choice
Both are determined to live with each other for the rest of their lives despite the arrangement not fitting well with many.
“This is my choice. This is my happiness, as anyone else has theirs. Before pleasing others, first, please yourself and decide not based on anyone else’s opinions,” Muima told Afrimax English.
Muima and his colleagues were house hunting when they landed at Thereza’s house, where they paid rent and started a new life.
She could be my grandmother
Thereza used to call Muima her husband, which he took lightly, but as time went by, both started falling in love.
“The way she behaved and treated (me) pushed me to love her and though she is an old woman and in reality, she could be my grandmother but I love her,” Muima said.
He recounted a day his colleague was away, and he was hungry and had no food in his rental house.
The woman brought him some food and served him with so much care before asking for a kiss, which he obliged.
As the bond got stronger, the couple spent time playing, lifting one another and travelling despite Thereza’s age.
He loves me, I love him
Most people who don’t know their love story think it’s a granny spending time with her grandchild or son.
Thereza has grandchildren older than her lover, but she is not ashamed of being in a relationship with Muima.
“I have eight children and 20 grandchildren. According to my boyfriend’s age, he could be my fifth grandchild.
He loves me and I love him. I am ready to put on the wedding dress and ring, “ she said.
