My Take- I have no power to condemn anything, what I know is that by 45 the boy would have been a grandfather and at 65 great grand father, laughter don finish me, every man lives and dies according to his destiny, also we are the prime movers of our destiny, if God joined them together, on my own side, I wish them the best in life, I am not a witch and I am not attending any witches/Wizards conference, my duty is always wish people well. No be small thing oo!!
