A 70-year-old Finnish pensioner is in love and she is definitely enjoying it.
Marja, who didn’t have sex for six years, met her Gambian husband, Dodou during one of her holidays in The Gambia. After a whirlwind romance, she decided to tie the knot with him.
She told Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet: “I never thought that a Finnish feminist like me would fall in love and live in a country where there is female genital mutilation.”
According to her, the marriage was rushed because Dodou's mother insisted they should be husband and wife before they could sleep under the same roof.
Marja further disclosed that although her 40-year-old husband is young and works in the tourism sector, he is not the type that jumps into bed with any female tourist if given a chance.
When asked if she financially supports Dodou, the 70-year-old said she regularly sends money to him and his extended family.
According to Marja, who is also older than her mother-in-law, she is happy to be married to a man young enough to be her son.
