Most people aren’t too keen on extreme age differences between couples, still, some choose to overlook the oddity when it comes to “true love”. BUT, wouldn’t you agree that marrying straight up the family tree is crossing the line….just a little?
A 24-year-old woman was given the boot by her father because she’d become pregnant. After living on her own for a while she decided to play her hand at some online dating…where she discovered eligible bachelor number one. He fit the bill…literally. He was a millionaire and someone who could take care of her the way daddy didn’t want to.
While they dated, they briefly talked about family, just the basics and after some convincing, she agreed to move in with her new sugar daddy.
But, the honeymoon wouldn’t last long, after 3 months of marriage these little love birds received a ‘terrible shock’. When they were flipping through her husband’s family photo album they came across a picture they both knew, her father, and his son, her husband was her grandfather.
According to the man, he had become estranged from the children of that marriage after his spouse left him, taking the children away and moving to an undisclosed location.
“All these years I was never able to find her,” he said, claiming that he had hired several private investigators who had failed to locate his ex-wife and children.
He had remarried and had several more children with the second wife which ended in the divorce which had a serious impact on his finances and won several million dollars in a lottery jackpot two years later.
In 2015, the man decided to find a new wife, he set about searching for a suitable partner and signed up with a local dating agency.
He went on to say that “They had a website with profiles of many attractive younger girls. I just felt something strange when I saw her photos. It was like a sense of deja vu, but at the time I couldn’t figure out why she seemed so familiar,”
“We just hit it off right from when she walked into the restaurant,” he recalled.
Then in order to justify his actions he added: “I’ve already had two failed marriages and I’m determined not to have a third,”
His granddaughter said: “When I saw my father in that photo album, I just felt an overwhelming sense of despair. I feel our bond is so strong that even something like this is not enough to make us give up,”
Despite the new bump in the road, the pair has decided to stay together.
Whoa! What would you do if you discovered that your spouse was a close relative of yours? Only in Obama’s America would it be okay to marry someone you are RELATED to. Has humanity gone mad?!
