Relationships come in different dynamics, and for some, it is dating someone with a significant age gap.

Most of the time, couples with substantial age difference often experience a lot of social disapproval as many people believe it parasitic.

However, a study has reported that couples who have a high gap page experience better satisfaction in their relationships.

That could be why this 24-year-old has found happiness in the arms of someone 37 years older than her.

A unique love

24-year-old Julia, a Youtuber, and singer met 61-year-old Eileen on the dating app Tinder in 2018. For them, it was love at first sight. Julia recalled that she was in awe of how calm and lovely Eileen was and decided that she wanted to be with her.

Ever since their first encounter, the duo has remained inseparable as they are genuinely in love.

However, their romance didn’t come at no cost as they have the victims of numerous hate comments from people who think their relationship is disgusting. Some even go as far as calling Eileen Julia's grandmother.

Replying to the spiteful comments, Eileen said:

"I'm not her mother. I'm her lover, I'm her girlfriend, and I'm her partner."

Julia revealed that many people believe their age-gap relationship is for money and not love, and the hate intensifies because they are lesbians.

Nevertheless, the pair preserved in love and shocked their haters when Julia popped the big question to Eileen at a singing gig.

While it was a bit difficult for Julia mum— who is eight years younger than Eileen— to accept their relationship at first, she was soon won over by their genuine love.

The lovers defied the haters and went on to tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony at a five-star-hotel in Liverpool Street, London on June 8.

Both brides dyed their hair pink and were in tears as they exchanged their vows in front of their family and friends.

Speaking about their new life together, the happy couple said:

“This is the endpoint, this is what love does. Love is love. We have as much right as everybody else to be happy, to get married and to celebrate our love.”
