A “May to December” romance is apparently being threatened by … social services in Britain.
According to the Daily Mail, an African man who took his octogenarian British wife to a care home for a brief period while he went to his native Gambia is threatening to go on hunger strike after she was not allowed to return to him.
The London mass daily reports that Ousman Jatta, 45, married Beryl, 88, in Gambia 13 years ago and moved back to Britain with her when she became ill with dementia in 2006.
Jatta says he is his elderly wife’s carer, however, he had taken her to the facility in February during a three-week visit to Gambia.
“But when he went to pick her up he was told social services had intervened and ruled she could not go home with him,” the Daily Mail said.
