The couple's wedding is not the only one that has raised eyebrows in the past. Briefly.co.za previously reported a woman has revealed that she has fallen in love with her first cousin and they are planning to get married.
The 35-year-old has had a string of failed relationships but seems to have found love with the 55-year-old family member. Monika Van Hoek and Paul Derschan from the US have found love despite the odds.
After months of a platonic friendship, the pair developed feelings for each other. As the couple got closer, family members began to worry. The pair were eventually disowned by a part of their family who wanted nothing to do with the union.
