108-yr old Malaysian woman back with 38-yr old hubby

Malaysian woman Wook Kundor, 108, sits outside her house in Malaysia's northern Kuala Terengganu state.
Kuala Lumpur: A 108-year-old Malaysian woman has reunited with her husband, a man 70 years her junior, after a year-long separation as he completed drug treatment.
Wook Kundor made headlines in 2006 when she married Mohammad Noor Che Musa, who is now 38, with pictures of the couple's wedding splashed across regional newspapers.
The couple were back together on Thursday after Muhammad completed a 12-month voluntary drug rehabilitation treatment in Kuala Lumpur, the Malay-language newspaper Utusan Malaysia reported on Saturday.
"I am grateful my husband has come back, I am happy we see each other again because I really love him," Wook told the daily, which had a front-page photograph of her husband hugging the smiling and wrinkle-faced centenarian.
"We will return to our normal life and I will serve my duty as a wife, just like any other woman," said the 108-year-old.
Mohammad said his elderly wife, whom he married in northern Terengganu state, visited him five times while he was at the rehab centre.
"I always miss her. I know I had done something wrong and I have repented," he said.
Wook reportedly said last year that she was ready to marry for the 23rd time because she feared Muhammad might leave her for a younger version after the drug programme ended.
But Mohammad, who was a lodger in Wook's house, previously said it was "God's will" that the couple fell in love.
