Blow(ed) for demanding blow job

an 82-year old pensioner has finally wedded his 65 year old girlfriend after dating her for 44 years.
The bride, Njandee Muuaza, says she was so excited to finally wed the man of her dreams, “I really thought this day would never come but it did and I am very happy.”
The groom, Viliho Nghenohanye, who is now blind, says his love for her is still very strong because their love did not come easy.
Nghenohanye is Oshiwambo, while Muuaza is Otjiherero. Their love for each other grew at the wrong time, when there was a tribal standoff between their tribes.
“Those years it was difficult to go out with a Herero man or woman, but we overcame that war and here we are today, still going strong,” explains Nghenohanye.
It was after the infamous Indjirizo war, caused by the death of Himuee allegedly on the hands of the Oshiwambos.
By 1978, after being in love for 12 years, they were forced to relocate to the Police Camp in Katutura after their house had been burnt down.
“I moved into the house wearing only the dress I had on. It was really sad that during those years it was a taboo to date an Oshiwambo speaking person,” says Muuaza.
“She wanted to get married all these years but then she stopped bothering me,” says Viliho.
“What woman doesn’t want to get married,” she says gigling.
A group of young men and women in and around the Police Camp, who have started a social club where they help people with funerals and weddings, also had a hand in the wedding.
Hafeni Ndjambaike, who is also a member says they talked to the both of them, “we convinced them, since they don’t have children, that they should marry incase one of them die before the other then they are taken care of.”
“We took care of the wedding and threw them a party, but I must say that we knew both of them since we were little and it really is a big inspiration to see them still going strong and finally married,” says Hafeni who was also a withness at their weding.
Neither of them have children. Although Njandee had three children from another man but all three have passed away.
