The youngest grandmother in the world: meeting her grandson at the age of 23!
Have you ever wondered who is the youngest grandmother in the world? Maybe not, but seeing the news will surely have stung your curiosity.
The youngest grandmother of record is called Rifca Stanescu , a Romanian gypsy who in 2009 officially became the youngest grandmother, after her daughter Maria gave birth at the young age of ... 11 years.
The youngest grandmother, will she also become the precocious great-grandmother?
The amazing thing about this family does not end here. Because in addition to having been mothers at the young age of 12 and 11 respectively, Rifca and her daughter Maria have declared that the newborn would already be committed to an 8-year-old girl, with what seems to be the habit of fathering children to short age could be maintained with the neonate Ion.
The extraordinary news was published at the time by newspapers as The Sun Y Daily Mail. The history of this peculiar family has been reason for comments and controversies, since the youth of mother and daughter has aroused great controversy . Grandma Rifca was born in 1985 and, when she was only eleven years old, she went to live with her boyfriend of 13, named Ionel, who, despite being only a pre-adolescent, was already selling jewelery in street markets. In a short time of coexistence, Rifca became pregnant. The couple, according to the grandmother, would have fled to live abroad because her parents wanted Rifca to marry another young man. In fact, Rifca would be compromised from the age of two, in a habitual pact between Romanian gypsy families.
Half happiness at the good news
Your statements to the English newspaper The Sun they have hinted that the grandmother has mixed feelings. Rifca recognizes that she feels joy and excitement about her daughter's recent motherhood, although "I also feel a little sad because I wanted my daughter to have had a different childhood and adolescence than I did." Rifca wanted his daughter to continue studying, but it seems that this is going to be complicated.
The gypsy culture, its uses and customs
The virginity is one of the imperatives that any gypsy woman must fulfill before getting married . Marriage pacts between families are broken if there is evidence that a bride has not maintained her chastity. This is one of the factors that explains the surprising precocity of many gypsy couples.
More cases of shocking precocity
Although it is implausible, the case of Rifca and María is not unique, especially compared to other mothers who gave birth at an even shorter age. A Peruvian girl named Lina Medina was the youngest mother of record, at the age of five years and 7 months . Is that medically possible? It is a rarity, but the news is completely true.
Doing a science fiction exercise, it can be said that if the descendants of Lina Medina had followed their steps and emulated their precocity to have children (something that did not happen, luckily), Lina, who is now 80 years old, would live with about fourteen generations of his descendants. Seeing is believing.
