They’ve been together for almost four years already, but 74-year-old, Almeda Errell, and 21-year-old, Gary Hardwick, are still as happily in love as ever. It was a whirlwind romance for the US couple who got married after just few weeks of dating, although he was just 17 years old at the time.
Gary was raised by his grandmother who approves of their relationship. His granny dismisses Almeda’s family’s objections to heir relationship, Briefly.co.za learned. Gary says he has always been attracted to older women.
The age of consent in Tennessee is currently 18 years old.
“There was people who doubted our love when we first got together, but it never mattered and never will because we have always knew the true love we have for each other and that’s all the confirmation our hearts have ever needed,” wrote Gary on Instagram in celebration of their three year anniversary.
Almeda and Gary met during a dark period in Almeda’s life. She first laid eyes on her future husband at the funeral of her firstborn son who passed away at the age of 45. Almeda has three other children.
