After searching high and low, the world’s tallest man has married a woman two-thirds his height, a Chinese newspaper reported Wednesday. Bao Xishun, a seven-foot, nine-inch herdsman from Inner Mongolia, married saleswoman Xia Shujian, who was five feet, six inches tall, several days ago, the Beijing New reported. Bao’s 28-year-old bride is half his age and hailed from his hometown of Chifeng even though marriage advertisements were sent around the world, it said. “After a long and careful selection, the effort has been finally paid off,” the newspaper said. Bao was confirmed last year by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s tallest person.
