A 90 year old Saudi man decided to end 90 years of bachelorship and to get married in a massive wedding.

"It was a big wedding that was held in exceptional conditions given the groom’s age…it will be remembered for many years to come," said Ahmed Ibrahim al Sulami, tribal chief in the western Saudi village of Shaab.

The groom, Khalil Al Sulami, told Kabar newspaper he would spend his honeymoon at a 5 star hotel in the nearby city of Qunfudah.

"I will never forget that night when I bid farewell to bachelorship," he said, refusing to specify his bride’s age.
