Woman, 107, mulls 23rd marriage

A 107-year-old woman in Malaysia said she is afraid her husband will leave her and she will need to marry for a 23rd time.

Mek Wok Kundor, 107, of Kuala Berang, said she married her 22nd husband, Mohd Noor Che Musa, 37, in 2005, but she now suspects he will leave her after he leaves the drug rehabilitation center he entered voluntarily in July, The Star, Kuala Lumpur, reported Monday.

Lately, there is this kind of insecurity in me, she said.

The centenarian said she is hoping her neighbors will drive her to visit her husband at the Kuala Lumpur clinic.

I want to express my feelings and tell him that I am lonely without him and if he reciprocates, I will wait for him without thinking of another marriage, she said.

However, she said she is willing to search for a new husband if necessary.

I realize that I am an aged woman. I don't have the body nor am I a young woman who can attract anyone, she said. My intention to remarry is to fill my forlornness and nothing more than that.
