Man, 24, loses 82 year old Wife
An 82 year old Argentine woman who attracted media attention last month when she married a 24 year old man has died as a result of heart problems. Adelfa Volpes was admitted to the hospital soon after she and her new husband, Reinaldo Waveqche, returned from their honeymoon in Brazil. She died in a sanatorium in Santa Fe, the city where the couple were married. Ms. Volpes had rejected criticism over the age difference with the groom, who is the son of one of her best friends. Their love is said to have blossomed when he went to live with his future bride after his mother's death when he was 15.
