An 81-year-old Chinese man has proved age need not be a barrier to Internet love, marrying a 58-year-old bride he met online, a local newspaper reported.
Wu Jieqin, a retired Beijing art professor who has spent time in an aged-care home, married Jiang Xiaohui, 23 years younger, in a ceremony on the weekend, the Beijing News reported.
“The Internet doesn’t belong to the young alone,” he told the paper. He said he had been using the Internet since 1998.
“There are no rules against old people seeking love online.”
