Father marries son’s ex-girlfriend, despite 24-year-age gap

Spread the love

A woman who met her husband while dating his son as a teenager has shared an insight into their relationship.

 

 

The Mirrow UK reported that Sydney Dean, 27, from Ohio, US, first met truck driver Paul, 51, as a sixth-grader after visiting her then boyfriend, Paul’s son, and the pair got married in 2016.

She first met him when she was in the sixth grade [aged 11] while she was visiting her boyfriend – Paul’s son.

The teenage pair remained friends after splitting – but never anticipated that their relationship would one day have a very different dynamic.

Sydney says she found herself as a third wheel after her ex-boyfriend got a new girlfriend and would often chat to dad Paul instead.

Sydney said: “I never expected to fall in love with Paul and we met in a non-traditional way, but I’m so happy I did.”

The pair started dating when Sydney turned 16, the legal consenting age in Ohio and in 2016, the pair tied the knot.

But she says their road to true love hasn’t been without its ups and downs — with the duo spending years convincing their families they were the real deal.

She said people still struggle to wrap their heads around their budding romance and the two-and-a-half decades between them — and Sydney says she has lost friends as a result.

“My mum already knew who Paul was and from the few times they have talked, they got along just fine,” said Sydney.

“But when I first told my mum that we were together, she was not happy.

“The age gap really got to her and it stayed that way for about a year – eventually she came around.

“[After this] we would go to her house almost every weekend just to hang out or have a BBQ.

“Now that we live pretty close to each other, she comes over all the time.

“She’s 100% supportive of us and absolutely loves Paul. In fact, they probably chat more than me and her do.

“In the beginning my father didn’t like the age gap either and as he lives out of state, he didn’t see him as much.

“But now, he really likes him.”

Are you in an age-gap relationship?

As for Paul’s two children, the couple believe that his youngest took their romance the “hardest” as Sydney already knew him.

Sydney said: “He didn’t agree with the relationship for a couple years, but now that we have been together and are married, he supports us being together.

“He comes over with his girlfriend and their three children every other weekend just to hang out with us and BBQ.

“Paul got into a horrible truck accident last July and was in the SICU for nearly three weeks.

“While he was in there, I would talk to his son everyday and we would come see him together.

“Now all the family is OK with us being together.

“I did have one friend that wasn’t OK with mine and Paul’s relationship.

“This friend would never want to come to hang out or even talk to me much at all if he was around.

“She eventually didn’t want to be my friend anymore because of the age difference in the relationship.”
