Lifestyle Desk. The marriage of a 24-year-old and 81-year-old woman in Ukraine is in the news these days. In fact, in Ukraine, boys from 18 to 26 years are required to undergo one year of military training. To avoid training, the 24-year-old man married an elderly woman with 57 years older than him two years ago.
According to the law, this training is exempted only for those who are responsible for the maintenance of the Divyang wife in any way. No result was found. The government declared it legally valid.
Married two years ago
Alexander Kondratyuk, who lived in the town of Vinitsa two years ago, was 22 years old when he was called for military training. To avoid this training, she planned to marry 79-year-old elderly woman, Jeanada Ilarovna. The woman is also his relative.
Both have been married for 2 years. Both will be bound in this bond until 2021 to avoid the law. After this, both will be separated because after 26 years the rules of military training will not apply to it. Alexander was interrogated as soon as the government got the marriage information. But all the marriage papers were found to be genuine.
Investigations also revealed that the couple married in front of family, relatives and friends in the entire customs in Bekovka, a village near the town of Vinitsa. Alexander was later relieved of this military training under the Civil Act.
Last month, the Ukrainian media raised the issue once more. The media inquired by going to the village where Zeenada lives. According to neighbors, Jeanada’s husband rarely comes to visit them. Most of Geneada’s nephews or their grandchildren arrive to visit.
