A 64-year-old woman has shared her joy after she married for the first time in her life as a virgin
Despite people’s discouragement, Erumena Amata, as she’s been identified never gave up on getting a man for herself.
She was ridiculed and told she was never going to have a man to call her husband but God being so good, she has finally got what she always prayed for.
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.
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.
