Sanele Masilela at 8 years of age married 61 year old Helen Shabangu in South Africa, in a ceremony that was attended by over a 100 guests.

Though the boy's family say its largely ceremonial ritual to appease their ancestral spirits as the wedding is said to have been ordered by the boy's grandfather from beyond the grave, the 6 year says he feels like a proper husband and is enjoying his status as a married man.
