Woman Ignores 29-Year Age Gap And Gets Hitched To Ex-Husband's Stepfather.

Woman Ignores 29-Year Age Gap And Gets Hitched To Ex-Husband's Stepfather.

A rather unique love story where a woman found her soulmate in her ex-husband's stepdad and the two are now married and living their happy married life together.

Erica Quiggle, 31 married her ex-husband's stepdad who is also 30 years her senior and claims she has found her soulmate despite the age difference.

Erica met her husband Jeff, 60,  when she was 16. She was friends with Jeff's stepdaughter and met her first husband Jeff's stepson.

But years later, the couple realized that they don't want to stay together anymore.



Erica, a stay-at-home mum from Kentucky, USA, was 19 when she married Justin, 38. The couple had a baby together and with time they started to drift apart. After their divorce, her father-in-law Jeff, an engineer by profession became her support system.

However, for the couple to admit to their feelings was not easy and took them long to confess it after both of their marriages ended. The couple had their daughter, Brexlee, two, after they married in August 2018.



Erica said: "It sounds scandalous, but we had this love we could not deny.

"Despite everything, our relationship now is perfect.

"Jeff is the young soul and I'm the old soul. He laughs when I say that, but it all worked out - and Justin was the most understanding person."

She shares custody of her child with ex Justin, who is now remarried and wishes the couple well.

Justin said: "Everything's all good now between us.

"There's no hatred there anymore. We talk about our son and we're both moving on with our lives."

Jeff on the other hand says he has found his soulmate in Erica. 

 He explained: "We really enjoy each other the way we are and we're going to enjoy the time we have.

"We've never looked at the age difference - we just fell in love the way we are."

She started dating Justin, who was 27 at the time and her friend's brother, before she married him at 19.




She said: "I met up with him and we went on a date and for some reason getting married seemed like the right thing to do.

"His family and my family said we needed to do it and that we were perfect for each other."

However, a time came when the former couple realized that they couldn't stay together any longer and wanted different things from life. 

She said: "I was building a team and wanted to go on to be a director and travel and do something out of the ordinary.

"In a small town you don't have that many people who dream. It's not that he didn't want me to do it - but he didn't understand it.

"It was hard for us, as we couldn't connect on that level."

It was in 2015 when her marriage was over and Jeff became Erca's support system.

Meanwhile, Jeff's marriage to Justin's mother also came to an end in 2016.




Jeff proposed just weeks after moving into their home and finding out they were having a child, while it was not a big romantic gesture, Erica said it's all she wanted.
"We were sitting out in the car one day and he was like, 'Do you want to marry me?' I was like, 'Duh'.

"It wasn't some romantic proposal, but it was exactly what we both wanted."

Justin has also given his blessings to the couple. 

He said: "It's been a few years now since all of this happened, and I've left it behind me and moved on.

"Me and Erica have a kid together, and we think about him above everything else.

"We do what can to provide support for each other and keep things on the cool side.

"We have a pretty good relationship - and we have to make it work regardless for our son."
