Hyderabad: We have heard several instances of women marrying old men – even twice their age. But breaking another level of stereotypes around age is this 24-year-old man Quran McCain and his American girlfriend – 61-year-old Cheryl McGregor.
The couple, who have a gap of around 37 years between them, have recently also tied the knot in a close-knit ceremony after dating for around 8 years. The videos of the wedding were shared on TikTok.
According to the ‘Daily Mail’, the love story is quite unconventional. Cheryl, the grandmother of 17, met McCain when he was just 15 years old. However, the couple claims that the romance did not start when they met, but rather blossomed when McCain grew up. They both bonded while shooting videos together for the short video app TikTok.
According to the couple, as they uploaded the dance videos, Cheryl was getting trolled for her not-so-good dancing skills. And that’s when McCain came to her rescue and slowly, over time, he started hinting that he was romantically interested in her which is when they got into a relationship.
However, the couple got constantly trolled on social media platforms – many also referred to Cheryl as McCain’s “grandma”.
“Sometimes it makes me cry because it gets so terrible,” Cheryl said. However, showing a positive gesture to his ‘age-old’ love, McCain says he would go to war for Cheryl as she is his queen.
However, only three of Cheryl’s seven children approve of the couple’s relationship while the McCain family is supportive of their union.
