He had assumed I was a gold digger because he also couldn't understand what a young girl would be doing with a much older man.
Despite all the stares and the comments, 14 years later we are still together.
We married in 2011 and had a little boy called Tanoa, a Fijian name, who is nearly three and is already an uncle to his half-sisters' children. I told him the price of being with a younger woman was that many of us would want children, if not marriage as well.
And of course, the rise in potential health issues of offspring is well known when both parents are more mature.
