(Scroll down for video) A family of the United Kingdom, cut off ties with their mother after she married her much younger lover.
Marilyn Buttigieg was 45 years old when she fell in love with her son’s best friend, who was only 16 years old.
William Smith said that it was love at first sight. He fell in love with Buttigieg after being invited to her home to play computer games with her son.
Buttigieg and Smith of Crawley, West Sussex, got married 6 years ago, after being together for four years.
When Buttigieg, a mother of 7 children and grandmother to eight grandchildren decided to be with her teenage lover, her family disapproved of the relationship and cut all ties with her.
People told the couple that their marriage will be short lived. However, the couple proved everyone wrong as they are now celebrating their 10 year anniversary of the day they met.
Buttigieg said that their 29 year age gap doesn’t matter. “Age is just a number and it’s about time people get over it,” she said.
