    He gets it, she gets it all in the end. Sounds like a win win situation here. Patience is the key here.
    Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

    She gets everything,...but maybe true happiness? Anna Nicole Smith's life story is a sad testament to that.

    True but at 17, she'll get over it soon enough.

    Hey now folks, he is a Somali villager, with 5 other wives (2 still living), and 114 children and grandchildren. I really doubt the new bride is in it for the "money".
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    This is the Somali version of getting a new washing machine.

    So she's doing it for "love.". Yeah, sure!

    I wonder how they verified that he's 112 years old. The story wouldn't be nearly as salaciously interesting if he was "just" 80 or 90 years old.

    This is not some exotic foreign custom. In early 20th-century America, young women were occasionally encouraged to marry elderly Civil War veterans. The idea was that they'd have a roof over their heads and food on the table while providing geriatric care to a man whose only income might have been his disability pension. When he died (and it wasn't usually a very long marriage) she'd get his survivor benefits pension. The U.S. was paying Civil War pensions all the way to the 21st century.

    A reporter asked the 112 year old man if it would be dangerous to his heart when they have sex. He replied, "If she dies, she dies" in a Somali accent.

    Well, I suppose you FM might think it is for love. But, I'd lean more towards it being due to perhaps some sort of Somali cultural status or security, etc, which would be valid for them regardless of my lack of education on their village customs.

    Hey! Maybe all she needs to do is talk dirty to him. I mean, c'mon, man! Ever seen a hard prune?
