Despite having a 45-year age difference and the man being the wife’s father’s age, the couple has admitted they don’t give a damn what people think.
With more than 40 years gap between them, this Canadian couple has proven the saying that “true love has no age.”
Manifesting on love don’t judge Stephanie, 25, as she described her romance with her 70-year-old partner, Don.
She described their first meeting five years ago at the bar where she was working: “I liked him, like, the second I saw his face.”
“I simply thought he was so charming and flirtatious, and he was so attractive.
“I was simply overjoyed every time he entered.
And it didn’t take long for Stephanie and Don to fall in love.
However, because of the 45-year age difference, many people, especially those close to the woman, who was 20 at the time, were surprised to learn that they were now dating.
“My brother was definitely not a fan, and neither was my mother, my father, or my father’s in-law.”
“They believed I was making a mistake since I got into trouble.”
Stephanie’s mother expressed her feelings, saying, “I felt that Stephanie was missing out on the possibility of meeting someone that she could grow old with.
“Because she was with an old individual.
“Unfortunately, her time with Don would be brief,” she said.
The now mother of one recalled receiving advice to “get help and get out” since she was constantly being gaslighted.
The pair, however, decided not to take what others had to say into consideration; they have now settled down and even have a son, Lachlan, who is two years old.
“If anything, getting married and having Lachlan has increased my sense of fulfillment significantly.
“To be really honest, I believe I chose the best course of action for myself.”
Speaking to the camera, Don admitted that he used to regularly get mistaken for Lachlan’s grandfather but that he no longer bothers and also doesn’t correct them.
Stephanie will occasionally react, even though she and her partner don’t really care what people think of them or how they appear to them anymore—especially when they are out and about with their son.
“Sometimes I like to point it up to them by asking, “Did you have a question? You’ve been looking at me for the past 25 minutes, I see.
“And they never act or speak,” she said.
Due to the nature of their relationship, the husband and wife team has also been the target of a variety of stereotypes, the most prevalent of which is Stephanie seeking Don’s money.
“Everyone seems to think I’m just looking for a life insurance payout and that I’m a gold digger.
“She clarified the situation by saying, “We live in a house my dad gave me, and I have a job, so I work full time.
Don is now in his seventies, so there is more than just judgment to worry about.
“A few or three of my beer drinking friends my age just passed away; not all, but several this year.”
“Don’t you dare die in your sleep,” I allegedly told him. Or I’d be furious.”
The two are on a mission to demonstrate that love has no bounds, despite what may seem like everything is working against their relationship.
“We decide not to hide our relationship because, well, why would you hide yours?”
