It happens that people say age is just a number. However, it cannot be denied that Gary and Almeda caused quite a stir when it turned out that they intend to marry. It wouldn't be that strange, if not for the fact that there is a 53-year age difference between the couple. "Age doesn't matter to us," they claim.

Gary and Almeda's relationship caused a lot of controversy, and both their friends and internet users repeatedly doubted the sincerity of their feelings. When the man married Almeda, he was 18 years old, and his chosen one was 71 years old. However, it turns out that the controversy doesn't end there, as the couple allegedly met under interesting circumstances.

The couple had to face harsh comments from people on a daily basis. It's undeniable that the age difference between the lovers shocked many, and their relationship was often the subject of various doubts. They are still together, however, proving that their feelings are genuine. News that the couple met when Gary was... 17 years old also triggered a lot of emotion. Thus, the young man's age became an obstacle on the way to the altar, as the lovers had to wait a year to formalize their feelings.

Several years have passed since the wedding ceremony. Gary is now 27 years old, and his wife Almeda recently turned 80. On the occasion of his wife's birthday, the man gave her special wishes.

Happy Birthday to the best wife in the world. [...] You deserve nothing but the best. I will work until my dying breath to give it to you. All my happiest moments are those I share with you. […] You truly are the love of my life and I love you with every beat of my heart. Here's to celebrating my queen. Happy Birthday doll Gary wrote on Instagram.
