- A 57-year-old man and a 27-year-old lady from Illinois have proved to the world that age should never be a problem for two people who are desirous of coming together
- Robert and Ada Owen are in love with each other and have decided to disregard those who mock them because of their age difference
- The 27-year-old lady says people usually think she is dating her grandfather
Age is just a number and should not hinder two people from falling in love with each other and enjoying the beauty of love.
Twenty-seven-year-old model Ada Owen and 54-year-old Robert Owen did not allow age to deprive them of the beauty of love.
Ada, however, said strangers mistake her partner for her grandfather because of the 27 years gap between them, Daily Mail reports.
Ada said because she is short, people usually think she is dating a grandfather and that she is a teenager.
She said: "People who do not know us, like to judge us. I am four-foot-nine tall and I am twenty-seven years old. I look fifteen. So from people's point of view, I am underage and I am dating a grandpa or father."
Ada said at first, her mother did not like the fact that she was with Robert, but she got used to it and is now happy for them.
She said age is just a number and has never been a problem for her. According to her, it is not the age that counts, but the heart and the mind of one's partner that should play a major role.
Reacting on Facebook, Alisa Jurković said: "Your choice ... Who cares what people think, they should mind their own business anyway! Love, enjoy & have fun!"
Irena Holc said: "Sounds familiar. Happened to me and my partner as well. We just laughed off."
