Like any doting father, Mukesh Ambani wanted his daughter Isha’s wedding to be the happiest day of her life. As a rule of thumb, getting married is an expensive affair. This didn’t bother Mukesh. As India’s wealthiest man he was determined his daughter would tie the knot in style.
While some people might say that a 40-year age gap between lovers is scandalous, Valda Rodrigues de Oliveira would disagree. The 106-year-old Brazilian woman has just become the oldest woman ever to get engaged. Doctors warned Valda and her 66-year-old boyfriend that they were too old to get married and could not take care of themselves.

And finally, they sealed it with a kiss.
