The 74-year-old former stonecutter, already father to eight grown-up children from four marriages, will tie the knot – and hope his new wife doesn’t eat it – on October 13.

“She doesn’t speak and doesn’t want money,” the groom-to-be said, according to The Evening Standard.

The ceremony will take place in Igreja do Diabo (Devil’s Church) in the city of Jundiai.

 “Whenever someone says I am doing something wrong I reply the goat does not speak, ask for money to go shopping and doesn’t get pregnant – and she can’t talk.” 

He says the marriage won’t be consummated.
