There is virtually always some controversy and media attention around a marriage between persons of different ages. This is particularly true when the woman is much older than the husband.
In the year 2000, a marriage took place between two people who were separated by a large age difference. Jay Barham, at 17 years old, wed Linda, a teacher at a driving school. The lady had 51 years under her belt at the time.
As Linda was a driving teacher, it was there that the two would eventually meet and have a family. The connection quickly developed into something far deeper than any of them realized.
The people around Jay and Linda did not approve of their relationship. They all blamed her for trying to seduce the guy and condemned her.
However, words, rumors, and chatter about the couple could not break apart their loving hearts. Wed they did.
As rumors spread that Linda was able to seduce and fall in love with a young boy, she was dubbed a kidnapper behind her back.
Parents of Jay’s thought he’d see the error of his ways and end his marriage to the 51-year-old bride. They refused to accept their stepfather since he was younger than them.
Time will tell whether or not the couple’s marriage was meaningful. The love they had for one another was genuine and undying.
It’s been 20 years since then. The couple followed in the footsteps of their parents and founded a store. They’re a candy store.
The grandparents of Linda’s seven grandchildren love spending time with them. Both partners are childless.
