112 Year Old Somali Man Marries 17 Year Old Bride

From Tom Chivers of the Telegraph.UK :

According to various accounts, Ahmed Muhamed Dore, a 112 year old man from Somali, married Safia Abdulleh, a 17 year old girl from his same village.

Other similar articles mention that this is Mr. Dore's sixth marriage, with 18 children and 96 grandchildren, with his oldest son being 80 years of age.

While Mr. Dore is not an immortal yet, from what I can tell, I have been finding more and more people like him, among us today; surviving many wives, children, and remarrying after reaching 100 years of age. Perhaps this will become the norm in the future?
