(Scroll down for video) A woman divorced her husband and married her son.

48-year-old Elizabeth Lorentz married her stepson, Eric Holder, 45, despite a French law banning marriages between stepchildren and stepparents.

The couple of the small village of Dabo, got married after struggling for months with the French authorities for the right to marry.

Lorentz met Eric’s father in 1989, when she just was 24 years old. The couple had a daughter in 1997. Eric is not only a step brother to the girl, but also her godfather. Eric also had a daughter with his partner, at the same time.

In 2003, Lorentz’s husband wanted a divorce and left her to care for their daughter, who was nine years old at the time of the separation.

“Eric was a great support to us and our relationship has evolved,” said Lorentz.

“When my father left my mother, I felt abandoned. I knew how she felt,” Eric said.

Eric and Lorentz’s friendship soon turned into love and it was not long before he proposed. Eric’s father, who is Lorentz’s former husband, reportedly attended their wedding along with about 100 guest.
