Teenager, 19, marries father-of-two 42 YEARS older than her despite family disapproval
Girl, 19, married a father-of-two, 61, even though her family was against the union.
Audrey Cheyenne-Smiley Moon, a 19-year-old military police officer, married a man 42 years older than her. Kevin, 61, met his future wife on the dating app Badoo in January last year, and within a few months, they were officially a couple.
The young girl was first captivated by Kevin’s military background. According to his bio, he was a veteran who had worked for the military police – just like Audrey does now. They had their first real-life date last July when they also shared their first kiss.
Speaking to Daily Mail, the young military police officer said:
“I was both excited and nervous to see him. He still talks about the day he laid his eyes on me with such passion. Kevin made the first move. He took my face in his hands and we had our first kiss when we first met face to face. We can both agree truly that it was love at first sight.”
However, Audrey’s family was not tolerant enough to accept their 42-year age gap.
Her parents, 38 and 43, even called the police to have Kevin arrested when they first learned of his relationship with their daughter. Audrey shares:
“My family was extremely hostile about meeting him at first because we told them about us in a bad way. I texted them while I was away with him and we came back to my parent’s house to my entire family and the cops waiting outside.
It was scary at first but Kevin was ready to stand for what he believed in and now after getting to know him, my family has really grown to like him.
For three days, they yelled at him every time he came to see me and did everything they could to tell him how terrible he is for loving me. He took it and since then has proven to them how much he truly and deeply loves me.”
Luckily, Kevin’s two children, aged 16 and 23, are supportive of his relationship with his much younger wife.
The couple got married on August 1, 2021, in a small Nevada chapel.
Opening up about planning her future alongside her husband, Audrey says:
“Most of the time we talk about getting our dream home, having a baby, and living our lives happily. He wants to be a stay-at-home dad and watch our baby while I am at work and he can pursue his woodworking hobby. He wants to cook and clean for me until I come home. Then we spend time as a family.
We want to travel in an RV. We want to get our favorite breed of dogs. Mine is a Staffordshire American terrier pit bull. He wants a Saint Bernard. We just want to be together and never separate again. We are eager to have our baby – it is just finding the right time.
Our lives make it difficult for dreams like that but we know in time we will live our dream.”
Although the couple lives separately, they plan to move in together once Kevin retires next year.
Currently, Audrey is working abroad in the Middle East, while Kevin lives in California. Nevertheless, the newlyweds are looking forward to living together.
The 19-year-old explains:
“What makes our relationship work even thousands of miles away from each other is our constant communication. We are always very affectionate towards each other and when times get hard, we try to focus on what we are fighting for. We talk about the future we can have together when our time apart is no longer.
I still look at him with eyes filled with pure love and joy and he looks at me the same way. Sometimes we get so happy we start to cry. I love how passionate and patient he is. He is also a very giving person and very kind. He has such a pure and loving soul.”
Talking about their age difference, Audrey adds:
“People my age are very inconsiderate and selfish. They focus on social media and gaining followers.
Kevin is the complete opposite. He is very understanding and only wants to do things for me.
People will do anything nowadays to get a like. Me and Kevin aren’t like that. We are very kind-hearted selfless people and love to help each other and the people around us before we help ourselves.”
Audrey believes Kevin is “the man of her dreams.”
“I did not think I would meet the man of my dreams who is also my best friend and love of my life. He is my soul mate and that is something worth fighting for. Love is endless and indescribable.
Kevin and I want to show the world that we aren’t the stereotypical sugar daddy or gold digger relationship. We truly love each other because of who we are and what we do for each other.”
“When I first saw her profile, I thought she was a cute girl but wasn’t looking for a young girl, just a friend to talk with. I was actually looking around my area and ages 30 to 50. Her profile shouldn’t have popped up. Something told me to look at it and something told me to like it, so I did.
I found a new best friend and fell in love with my best friend.”
