Posted in: , , , ,

These days, finding enough time in your hectic life to really connect and enjoy your partner can be pretty tough.

What you don’t realize is that you can enjoy and reconnect with your significant other from the comfort of your own home.

African Husband Threatens Hunger Strike After 88-Year-Old UK Wife Is Remanded in Care Home

Posted in: , ,

Ousman Jatta, 45, married British Beryl in the Gambia, when they were 32 and 75 years old respectively. The couple moved to the UK 9 years ago and Ousman soon took up a job as a store secrity officer. He has remained devoted to his much older wife who has since declined in health and developed dementia.

The much younger man, who is his wife's primary carer, received an emotional blow after he took her to a care home for respite - and social workers refused to hand her back. The devoted hubby dropped her off at a care home in February for respite while he took a well-deserved three-week break to his homeland. But when came back to the UK and went to pick her up, he was told social services had intervened and ruled his dementia-suffering wife couldn't return home with him.
