As a 24-year-old woman, my 85-year-old husband is older than my grandmother – but we are considering IVF so that he can become a father for the first time.
The couple is ready to have a family despite the husband having an age gap of 61 years with his wife’s grandfather.
In the year 2019, 24-year-old Miracle Pogue met Charles Pogue for the very first time at a launderette, and they instantly built a friendly connection.
The couple is considering IVF as they have decided to start their family, despite having an age gap of 61 years because Charles, 85, doesn’t have any children and now he wants to leave generations.
One year later, Charles finally decided to confess his love in front of Miracle, and in February 2020 he proposed to the nurse.
According to the Daily Mail, a retired realtor, who is a decade older than his wife’s grandfather and never became a father before really wants to leave a legacy for Miracle’s family.
Miracle revealed that her 45-year-old mother named Phillips, and grandfather, Joe Brown have been very supportive since her relationship started as they had seen that the retired real estate agent treated her like a queen.
“Charles used to bring in one item of clothing and only wanted me to serve him,” Miracle said.
Charles started falling for her after a year of meeting her, and in February 2020, he proposed to the nurse.
Miracle already knew about the age gap between Charles and her, however, she found him attractive and liked his vibes.
“I found out in conversation when we asked each other our date of birth, and he said he was born in 1937. When I found out I was in too deep, it was a couple of months in, and I already had feelings for him. He was my baby, and he wasn’t going anywhere,” she said.
At first Miracle thought him as a 60 or 70 year old man because of his physical appearance and healthy lifestyle.
Miracle said that according to her age is just a number and it doesn’t matter to her that how much he is older than her, and the thing which is truly matters to her is the great beginning of the new chapter of her life.
“I don’t care if he’s 100 or 55, I like him for him. My grandad said if I was happy and it’s what I want to do then he’s happy,” Miracle said.
“My dad was like ‘hell no ma’am, not at all’. It took a lot of time to convince him but I asked him if he wanted to lose his daughter forever.”
She also revealed that she told her father to not refused her for the wedding and if he stop her, she would never let him see her again.
“I told him I needed his support and to walk me down the aisle. Once he got to meet Charles and talk to him, he loved him,” she said.
“Miracle has got a lot going for her. She’s got her life in order, she’s great,” Charles told the Daily Mail.
“There’s no problem with the age difference,” he added.
In July, 2022, the couple got married and described the day as the most wonderful day of their life.
Looks like Charles doesn’t care what people think about them and their negative comments cannot stop them to live a happy life together.
“We just let them do their thing. We’re very happy together. We’re looking forward to starting a family together,” he said.
