Hazi Abdul Noor claims he is world’s oldest groom; Age in voter list says he is 116 years old.

A man who claims to be the oldest groom in the world has tied the knot for a second time with a woman half his age, according to ‘ninemsn’.

Hazi Abdul Noor, who is 120 years old, married 60-year-old Samoi Bibi in front of 500 guests in the village of Satghari in north-eastern India.

The bridegroom’s son Hazi Azir Uddin told the Times of India his father had asked his children to help find him a new companion who would be able to look after him after his first wife died in 2005.

“It’s not an easy job to find a bride for a 100-year-old. However by the grace of god, we have found a new mother,” Uddin said.

Although it is not clear if Mr Noor has any formal proof of age, the groom maintains he is 120 years old despite his age in the voter list being recorded as 116.

According to the Guinness World Records, 114-year-old Japanese man Jiroemon Kimura inherited the title of the world’s oldest living man after the death of American Walter Breuning in April.

The oldest living woman is Besse Cooper from US, who marked her 115th birthday in August this year.
