They say age is just a number and it shouldn’t be a bother when you’re in a relationship. However, whether we like it or not, a lot of people will still judge couples with huge age gaps.
So when a 73-year-old civil leader marries a Filipino bride four decades his junior, it raised a lot of eyebrows. Widower Kit Owen then admitted that he met his wife, Aiza, who’s in her 30s, online.
People would most of the time think that an old groom takes advantage of the innocence of his young bride, while a young bride only marries her old groom for his money. As judgmental as it sounds, that’s the reality that these couples have to deal with.
But despite these negative comments, Kit decided to follow his heart.
Living in a world powered by the internet, Kit tried looking for love on social media. After a year of finding love on FaceTime and Whatsapp, Kit flew to Asia so he and Aiza from the Philippines could meet in person.
Kit, who has been mayor of March in Cambridgeshire five times, said:
“After getting on so well over FaceTime and Whatsapp, it seemed it was time for me to go and meet her in person.”
That’s when he traveled to the Philippines to meet the woman of his dream in real life, after not seeing each other in the flesh for a year. He also got to spend time with Aiza’s family and friends during his trip.
After two years of courting, the pair finally tied the knot at the library before going on to a reception at Ye Olde Griffin Hotel with ten close family and friends. Kit said he “can’t remember” how he proposed but says that the couple is very happy.
Asked to plant a kiss on his new wife, Kit told photographers “behave,” before pecking Aiza on the lips.
Kit and Aiza celebrated their union with ten close family and friends.
“We had a meal, and there was some drinking but no dancing or anything like that!”
Kit has two children, Lisa and Jonathan, with his former wife, Beverly Owen, who died in 2008.

Woman Can Only Hear Female Voices And Not Males — Including Her Boyfriend
It’s a rare ear condition.
Hearing is an essential part of how we communicate with others and how we become aware of sounds that happen in our immediate environment. But what if the sounds that we hear are limited?
Just take this one Chinese woman, for example. She was diagnosed with a rare condition which enables her to hear just voices of women and not men. As bizarre as it sounds, it is a real diagnosis.
