According to her, God did it for her and put many people to shame. She revealed that her heartthrob is not only taller than she is, he is also way older.

I hoped every year

Erumena said that whenever her friends got married, she was happy. Every year, she always tells herself that she would spend the year’s December in her husband’s house.

The woman stated that the most painful thing was that the child that was delivered in her presence grew up to get married and even had a kid of her own.

What affected me

Sixty-four-year-old Erumena said that her over-moralised lifestyle affected her as she was always trying to be perfect.

On her wedding day, she stated that she could not call her friends bridesmaids or flower girls because some of them are way older than she is. She called them maids of honour instead.
