Woman, 74, To Marry Man, 27, Who Says She Reminds Him Of His Own Grandmother
A couple with a 47-year age gap say they are determined to show the world love has no age limit – despite the husband being younger than some of her grandchildren.
Kathi Jenkins, 74, met Devaughn Aubrey, 27, from Texas, US, on the adult hookup site Adult Friend Finder.
Despite the site not being a dating app, the two decided they would like to get to know each other anyway.
The relationship turned into much more than sex for Kathi and Devaughn, with the pair now engaged to be married.
With the pair being in a relationship for over a year, Devaughn said he knew that the 74-year-old was the one for him.
He said: “We met online on AFF it is a hook up site neither of us were looking for a serious relationship.
“I stumbled on her picture, it was a picture of her breast. I read her profile and messaged her in hopes of a response, she was online too and answered back.
“I asked for her number and she gave it to me then she immediately asked how big my member is and we talked for a bit that night.”
The couple then talked for four months before actually meeting, as Kathi lived two hours away from him.
Upon finally agreeing to meet, Devaughn continued to say: “Once I got to her house she was waiting for me already in bed and directed me inside her house to her room and I came in her door and saw her, she looked way hotter than her pictures and smelled really sweet and good.
“She had this silky dark red blouse on with nothing else.
“Thank god I never told her my height. She’s very selective, she’s a size queen that likes tall men and I’m 5ft 7ins so once she saw me in person one of the first things she said was ‘you’re short’ or ‘you’re shorter than I thought‘.
“She wasn’t mad, she thought I was hot and we met at a hotel room a couple weeks after that and just kept meeting every week until she invited me over for Thanksgiving then we became official I guess.”
Kathi was previously in a few long term relationships, but was never married before.
She is now retired, with four children, 13 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren and one great great grandson.
Devaughn – who works as a stocker at Walmart and a porter for condos – has no children, but was once married at the age of 24. However, he divorced in 2021, shortly before he met Kathi.
And he has admitted that this relationships is unlike one he has ever been in before.
He said: “She is so perfect for me and she is very experienced in life and teaches me a lot. We never fight, can always talk without yelling and I trust her completely.”
He added that one of the things that drew him to Kathi was her jokes and her looks, adding: “She sings beautifully and she knows a lot of those old songs that remind me of the stuff my grandmother liked and she knows a lot of the artists that my grandmother liked.
“I guess I like how old she is because I like older women or old women regardless if she needs a walker and stuff. I have never been bothered by that.”
Despite being in the relationship for a while, and with plans to get married next year, the pair have faced some adversity in their relationship.
The 74 and 27-year-olds say they want others to look at their relationship and let love be love, adding that they do not want age gap relationships to have stigma.
For people who may find themselves in a similar relationship they said: “If you love someone older, go for it, do what makes you happy.”
And Davaughn said: “I think we should all do what makes us happy no matter what people think or feel, be natural.”
