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. A video of Selamat Riayadi marrying his bride Rohaya has emerged, showing the couple committing to spending the rest of their lives together. The marriage is not believed to be motivated by money, as both newlyweds are equally poor. Selamat's family made a dowry payment to Rohaya's family of 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah, worth about £11.50. The clip shows the young groom put his face in his hands as the union is proclaimed, his expression unreadable.
