Video of Moroccan man marrying elderly French woman lights up social media

Published: Updated:

A video of a young Moroccan man’s marriage to an elderly French woman in France has gone viral on social media pages in Morocco.

In the short segment from the couple’s wedding, the young man is holding his wife’s hand who’s having difficulties walking up the stairs due to problems in her legs.

Among the guests were Moroccans who congratulated the couple as they sang and ululated for them.

Many social media users voiced surprise over the age difference and wondered why a young man would marry someone “as old as his grandmother.”

Some said it could be because he wants to get legal residency in France while others said it could simply be love.

Other users however went as far as accusing the young man of being a gold-digger and said he may have married her for inheritance purposes.
