"Grandfather and granddaughter!" A couple with a 42-year age difference is being hated online: people don't believe it's love
Dave, 70, and Jackie, 28, fell in love with each other from the first "click" on a dating app almost seven years ago. After 42 years of age difference, the couple often suffers from Internet trolls.
This was reported by the Daily Star. They met when Dave flew to the Philippines, Jackie's homeland.
The lovers quickly hit it off. After several dates, the girl moved to the United States to live with her new lover. Now the couple shares videos and photos of their relationship, but not everyone accepts their age difference.
Trolls have targeted the lovers in the comments: some call the 28-year-old beauty a "gold digger" and suggest that she is with 70-year-old Dave only for his money. Meanwhile, others say he "looks like her grandfather."
In response to one of the mocking comments, Jackie recorded a video that read: "We have a 42-year age difference, and it doesn't matter to us. You know, we love each other. That's the most important thing."
"He's not a grandfather," she said, emphasizing that her husband doesn't even have children. "But you know, I think you have to be careful when you use that word, because we're all going to get old someday. If you don't have anything nice to say to other people, go about your business." They continue to show people on their TikTok that they don't care and their relationship is true love. Currently, their account has about 50 thousand followers.
In one of the videos, Jackie was lying on her lover's lap, gently caressing his face, adding in her caption: "I am blessed." Another video showed a married couple kissing while cuddling in bed.
However, TikTok users still have different opinions about the couple's relationship. One user said: "Grandpa and granddaughter!" Another added: "This is just disgusting."
But some followers defended the relationship, saying the couple seemed to be full of love. One commented: "You have real genuine love. I'm happy for you." Another said: "You both love each other so much." A third wrote: "Love is in the air. A beautiful couple. I have great respect for your relationship."
