A Zimbabwean man has been called out and dragged on Twitter after he revealed reason why he would not marry a 28 year-old woman.
According to Twitter user @SainiTawanda, he would not marry a 28-year-old girl because a girl of that age is expired.
“I wouldn’t marry a 28 year old woman for the same reason I wouldn’t buy milk one day before its expiry date.”

It’s ok to have personal preferences but comparing another human being to expired milk seems a bit harsh.— Tete Fadzie (@RealTalkFadzie) December 8, 2020

You wouldn’t marry a 28 year old for sure coz it’s guaranteed that she wouldn’t fall for you— Mashava (@emmaculatempofu) December 8, 2020
It’s so sad that in this day an age such utterances are still being made. Women do not expire and to liken us to groceries is detestable..what would we then call our mothers and aunts? this thinking is so derogatory.— Special Meat 👑🇨🇮🇿🇼 (@SientaniaM) December 8, 2020
These are bomboclates who supports child marriage, you don’t feel for the girl child. Some of them at that age they would be still trying to attain MSc n advancing their careers then iwe musoro bhangu woti ichembere.— Ghetto Elder (@Lincolnmpofu002) December 8, 2020
Actually marrying towards your 30s or after 30 is better than getting married in your early 20s. In your late 20s you know exactly what you want from life including the qualities you expect from your life partner hence are less likely to end up divorcing that person.— Thabi (@MwanaWachihera) December 8, 2020
