The 40-second video circulating on Facebook shows several people surrounding Andi Linge and Ina for the Bugis mappasikarawa traditional procession, or the groom holding the woman.
The couple’s marriage, which is 50 years apart, has also gone viral after it was uploaded directly by Andi Yaya Bulqiez Maddenuang. In the video, Andi Linge continues to smile, while Ina feels shy. Even so, Ina smiled occasionally when the two of them sat side by side.
“If the marriage was last night, this widow and widower,” said the head of Sanrego Village, Andi Malla, to the media crew, Tuesday, May 10, 2022.
He said that before marriage, Ina was a rice harvester who worked in Linge’s rice fields. From there, Linge’s first seed fell in love with Ina.
“Pak Haji Andi Linge can be said to be the owner, hehe, a farmer with a large plot of land and a woman who often cuts her paddy, Ina. Maybe that’s where her introduction began,” he said.
