The Florida bride, only 24 years old, was shocked to find out who her husband really is – her own grandfather, whom she’d never met. They found out while she was browsing his old family albums. She looked at the young people on the photos and couldn’t believe her own eyes. She saw what looked like her father on multiple photos. As it turns out, the groom’s estranged son really is her father.
To add to the overall oddity, they both still want to make the marriage work somehow. The old man said that he “already has two failed marriages behind him” and he’s determined not to have it happen again. Even the young bride is supportive of this decision. She stated: “our bond is so strong that even something like this is not enough to make us give up”.
He left the first and then the second marriage. He moved to Miami and never saw his children again. About 30 years later, he signed up on a companionship and dating website and started a relationship with the unsuspecting young 24-year-old from Jacksonville. In a statement for the Florida Sun Post he said:
It was like a sense of deja vu, but at the time I couldn’t figure out why she seemed so familiar.
When the young bride found out who he was, at first she felt an overwhelming sense of despair, but later when they both calmed down and realized that the world hasn’t ended because of this mistake, they had a talk and figured out what to do next.
There is a question of legality in these cases so nothing is set in stone for the time. The intriguing question for many is what would happen with the millionaire’s assets if a divorce was to be ordered. The millionaire would probably lose a lot in case of an outright divorce, but maybe the courts can arrange something for the optimistic couple.
