107-Year-Old Spinster Looking For Husband

107-Year-Old Spinster Looking For Husband

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 107-year-old Chinese woman who was afraid to marry when she was young has decided to look for her first husband and hopes to find a fellow centenarian so they will have something to talk about, a Chinese paper reported.

Wang Guiying is worried she is becoming a burden to her ageing nieces and nephews since breaking her leg when she was 102 and had to stop doing chores like washing her clothes.

`I`m already 107 and I still haven`t got married,` the Chongqing Commercial Times quoted her saying. `What will happen if I don`t hurry up and find a husband?`"


What a sweet and touching story, a 107-year-old spinster is searching for a fellow centenarian to marry. China may have a billion-plus population, but I doubt there`s more than a handful of centenarians in the entire country. Guys always look for women younger than themselves, a 100-year-old man won`t nothing to do with a 107-year-old woman, he will want to hook up with a 70-year-old spring chicken.

Ms Wang is worried that she`s a burden to her family because she can no longer perform chores like like washing her clothes. Does she think that an old goat is going to be up to the task of taking out the garbage and washing her clothes?

"I`m already 107 and I still haven`t got married. What will happen if I don`t hurry up and find a husband?" The poor old bird is in denial, there is no way she`s going to find a husband at her advanced age. She`s like a 50-year-old lady complaining that time is running out, and she`d better get pregnant before it`s too late to experience motherhood.

Ms Guiying wants to get married so that they will have something to talk about. Dear Lord, what do people that old have to talk about? I`d suggest that she adopt a parrot, he will listen to her and may even talk back, which is a lot more than she can expect from an old codger.
