“It is what we want” – Boy, 17, marries girl, 16, in Nnewi

Two teenager sweethearts, a 17-year-old boy and a 16 years old girl got married in Nnewi, Anambra state.

The boy named Somto, allegedly dropped out of school and insisted on getting married.

Although the family initially refused the marriage but they eventually gave in and the traditional wedding between the teenagers held last weekend in Anambra state, according to Anaedoonline.

There were speculations that the boy might be the only child, hence the early marriage. But this has been disputed as it was revealed that the boy has an elder brother who is a graduate and works in a hospital in Anambra state.

To empower the young couple after their traditional wedding, the boy’s family reportedly opened a retail shop for them to manage.
