Meet 8 year old Sanele Masilela who just tied the knot with 61 year old, mom of five, Helen Shabangu.

The bride and groom traded rings and locked lips in front of about 100 guests. The reason for this arrangement was because it was his deceased relatives wishes. In fear of bad energy coming onto the family they proceeded as soon as possible. In reports Sanele said he chose Helen because he loves her.

Even though $2,000 was spent on the wedding, vows were said, and then some. Helen and Sanele didn’t sign a marriage certificate and they don’t live with each other. So even though this ritual is official, it’s not legally binding.

Its out of the ordinary but we give our best wishes to the spouses.

Scavenger’s Daughter (or Skevington’s Daughter) was invented as an instrument of torture in the reign of Henry VIII by Sir Leonard Skeffington, Lieutenant of the Tower of London,[1] a son of Sir William Skeffington, Lord Deputy of Ireland, and his first wife, Margaret Digby. It was an A-frame shaped metal rack to which the head was strapped to the top point of the A, the hands at the midpoint and the legs at the lower spread ends; swinging the head down and forcing the knees up in a sitting position so compressed the body has to force the blood from the nose and ears.
