Tallest Man Takes On Tall Order: Marriage

Tallest Man Takes On Tall Order: Marriage

Bride Found After Worldwide Search

The world's tallest man is now also the world's tallest groom. Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9 herdsman from Inner Mongolia, got married Thursday. After a worldwide search for a bride, Bao found his lady love in his hometown.

She's Xia Shujian, a saleswoman who's more than 2 feet shorter. It was a traditional Mongolian ceremony, with one exception. Bao didn't have to kneel and touch his head to ground.

The official China news agency said the sign of respect to Bao's parents and new in-laws was skipped because of his extraordinary height and bad knees.
