It what may sound a little surprising to many across the world, a 92-year-old Iraqi man married a woman, who is 70 years younger to him, in a ceremony which also witnessed the wedding of the groom's two grandsons.

Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie, 92, and his 22-year-old bride Muna Mukhlif al-Juburi tied knot on Thursday evening in a traditional ceremony that lasted for almost four hours.

Interestingly, Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie's two teenage grandsons also tied the knot in the same ceremony that was attended by several local tribal and religious leaders of Gubban village which lies south of central Iraqi city of Samarra.

After wrapping up the wedding ceremony, an excited Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie told AFP, "I am so happy to get married with my grandsons."

Stating that he felt much younger at the age of 92 after getting married in the same ceremony with his grandsons aged 16 and 17, the eldest groom added, "I feel like a 20-year-old!"

Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie went on to say that the marriages of his grandsons were getting repeatedly postponed due to the delay in the arrangements of his marriage.

It was Musali Mohammed al-Mujamaie's second marriage, three years after the death of his first wife, who expired at 58. The duo raised 16 children at their village of Gubban.

The extended ceremony of triple wedding witnessed various musical and dance performances and celebratory gunfire.
