A 16-year-old boy, Selamat Riayadi, has gotten married to his 71-year-old heartthrob, Rohaya, in Indonesia.
DailymailUK reports that the duo who claim to be deeply in love threatened to kill themselves if family members deter them from getting married. Rohaya had been widowed twice before.
No one knows the motivation behind the union is, as both lovebirds are poor.
A dowry of 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah (N5,500) was paid by Selamat's family to Rohaya's family.
The wedding took place at the home of a local community leader named as Kuswoyo.

When the video and photos of the weird wedding hit the internet, many did not believe it. Questions about its authenticity were raised. But an Indonesian news outlet claims it spoke to Kuswoyo who confirmed both the marriage and the couple’s threats to kill themselves if they were barred from marrying.
"They said they wanted to commit suic*de because they were completely in love, so if one of them dies, then both must die."
