A 16-year-old boy has married his 71-year-old sweetheart after the pair threatened to kill themselves if their families blocked their union.

Selamat Riayadi married his bride Rohaya and the marriage is not believed to be motivated by money, as both newlyweds are equally poor.jkh.jpg

Selamat’s family made a dowry payment to Rohaya’s family of 200000 Indonesian Rupiah worth about £11.50.

According to Daily Mirror, 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.

He said: “They said they wanted to commit suicide because they were completely in love, so if one of them dies, then both must die
