Millionaire grandfather marries granddaughter, says divorce is not an option

A Florida woman is attracting worldwide attention for bizarre reasons, which is fitting of many news stories coming out of the Sunshine State. The Sun reports that the unnamed woman married her own grandfather unwittingly, but that’s not the most interesting part of this strange story of taboo romance.


The couple reportedly met through an online dating site. The 68-year-old lottery winner somehow attracted the attention of the 24-year-old Florida woman, and they began dating. The couple eventually got married, but three months later they made a shocking discovery that seems stranger than fiction. The woman’s 68-year-old husband turned out to be her estranged grandfather, the father of her own biological dad.

The Florida man in this bizarre story doesn’t want to be named (nor does the bride), but he has said that he doesn’t want to end this marriage. The man has been married two times, and doesn’t want this latest marriage to end in divorce.

It was apparently easy for the two Floridians to marry one another without realizing they were related. The 68-year-old man had been estranged from his families from both his first and second marriages. The Florida woman he married had also been estranged from her family. It wasn’t until the two of them were going through his old photo albums that she realized what they had done. She saw a photo of her dad in the album, and both she and her new husband were able to make the connection pretty quickly.

Neither of them plans on divorcing, but the state of Florida appears to draw a clear line with what’s acceptable in regards to incestuous relationships.

The husband/Grandfather said:

“If we’d never found out, we would’ve lived our lives happily together, and us being related shouldn’t change that.”

 The man added:

“ I’ve already had two failed marriages, and I’m determined not to have a third.”

The wife/granddaughter added:

“Every couple is different and special in their own ways. I feel our bond is so strong that even something like this is not enough to make us give up.”

The couple haven't been named yet.
