A 25-YO Man Is Marrying an 85-YO Woman With 8 Kids: "This Is My Choice, This Is My Happiness"

The woman has 8 kids and 20 grandkids and she is marrying him against the wishes of her kids.

Muyiwa, 25, is all set to marry his lover, an 85-year-old woman named Thereza. The woman's 8 kids and Muyiwa's friend Kakule does not approve of their marriage but the couple has decided to go ahead with it anyway, reports Legit. Thereza is also the landlady of the apartment where Muyiwa and his friend reside. He told Afrimax that he moved to an undisclosed African country from Congo just to continue his education at the university. While living on Thereza's property and regularly interacting with her he decided that he has fallen in love with her.


Muyiwa claims that previous girls he's loved in the past have been dramatic, but Thereza is unique. He spoke about the time when they fell in love with each other, "I remember one Friday when my colleague wasn't around, I was hungry and we had no food. I was very weak. And out of nowhere, the old woman brought me some food. She came and served me with too much care." Thereza had always been kind to him and this was just one example. He added, "The way she behaved and treated me pushed me to loving her. Though she is an old woman and in reality could be my grandmother, but so what! I love her." 


They both faced a lot of backlash for their relationship but Muyiwa has something to say for everyone who doesn't agree with his love for Thereza. He said, "This is my choice, This is my happiness. As everyone has theirs." Thereza is also completely in love with him and is ready to take every risk that is required to sustain their relationship. She said during the interview, "I am 85 years of age. I have 8 children and 20 grandchildren. According to my boyfriend's age, he could be my 5th grandchild. He loves me and I also love him. I am now ready to put on the wedding dress and ring." 

Users on Youtube have splitting opinions regarding the massive age difference that the couple share. A user commented, "Amongst all things that concern me in life, 2 adults sharing life together is something I couldn't care less about. And for the people who hate on them, go get yourself a life, probably work more and you'll have less time to hate on happy people." Another wrote, "What a beautiful story and this goes to show that no matter where you are in the world, the heart knows what it wants irregardless of others perspective." A third user said, "It is good to be loved and to love. Although there's a huge gap between their ages but seeing her laugh makes me feel better and she deserves all the happiness especially with her age."
