An elderly man shocked his neighbors by marrying his son’s young girlfriend, officials in Italy said.

A member of the family said that the 87-year-old man of Tuscany, married his son’s girlfriend so she could stay in the country.

The son’s girlfriend of Brazil, was scheduled to be deported after staying in the country illegally. In a desperate attempt to keep his girlfriend in the country, the son asked his father to marry her.

The elderly man did not think twice, and immediately agreed to his son’s request. The son could not marry her because he is still in the process of divorcing his estranged wife.

The neighbors of the couple were shocked to see the elderly man and the woman getting married in a public ceremony. It is unknown whether the 87-year-old man consummated his marriage.
