“A 96-year-old temple keeper has become Taiwan’s oldest groom on record after marrying a woman less than one third his age, a report said Friday.

Lin Chung, who runs a Taoist temple in south Taiwan’s Tainan county, is the talk of town after wedding a 30-year-old woman from mainland China’s central province of Hunan, said the Taipei-based Apple Daily.

Lin claims that he was instructed by the gods three years ago to go to Huan and find himself a wife. I wonder if this was a unanimous decision by the gods, wasn’t there at least one deity who thought that telling a 93-year-old codget to get married was a stupid idea?

And if the gods did tell him to go find a wife, why the hell did he wait three years? No man is promised tomorrow, certainly not one who is 93 frigging years old.

You don’t have to consult the gods to know that Lin found himself a golddigger, and not a faithful wife.
