TEHRAN, Jan 17 (Reuters) Jan. 17 - A 20-year-old Iranian man has married a
77-year-old virgin in a village in the east of the country, newspapers said on Wednesday.

They said the youthful groom, Hesam Khalili, had wed septuagenarian Fatemeh Jamshidi Khakhi in the village of Gonabad in Khorasan bordering Afghanistan.

Ali Pourhossein, a local civil servant responsible for registering marriages, approved the match between the young man and what newspapers called the "happy girl," saying both were in perfect health and there was no legal barrier to their nuptials.

Weddings between aged grooms and youthful brides are relatively common in Iran, but seldom the other way round.

The official IRNA news agency speculated the groom had wed his ageing bride so as to cut his two years of military service. Married men only serve half the term, it said.
