Malaysian centenarian to wed 82-year-old grandma

Age does matter when the matter ages.
A Malay-language newspaper Utusan Malaysia reported earlier this week a 110-year-old man who is looking for a woman to become his wife--to have company and to take care of him.
Ahmad Mohamad Isa has 20 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren. He outlived his four wives and divorced his fifth.
As destiny would have it, 82-year-old Sanah Ahmad responded to the news report and had asked her children to contact the centenarian's family to make arrangements.
Sanah is a mother of nine and has been widowed for 30 years. Reports said that she is willing to become the wife of Ahmad.
Ahmad, who has mild hearing and vision problems, said on Sunday, "It doesn't matter who she is, as long as she can cook for me."
He was evidently happy and surprised that someone had responded to his wedding offer. Ahmad's daughter would discuss the details with Sanah's family.
He further said, "It is lonely to live alone and I am afraid to sleep alone. If I have a wife she can take care of me."
The reason for the almost impossible call for marriage was when Sanah told the newspaper that she was attracted to the man because he bears a striking resemblance to her late husband and they share the same name.
