A 48-year-old lawyer hailing from Estonia is working hard to stay in the nation of Australia, just so he can be with his 103-year-old lover.
The man explained how he fell in love with the widow of his grandad and since then, he can’t get her out of his head.
The pair get plenty of criticism across the board. Some critics feel that their love or relationship is not real.
Mart Soeson goes on to add how the pair’s relationship with Elfriede Riit since the start of 2013 has been in a whole different league altogether.
The pair lived together for years and then she was forced to move into a nursing home in the year 2022. The fact that he has fallen in love with his grandfather’s second wife has people talking. Moreover, it’s shocking how the family refuses to accept his latest love interest.
Ms. Riit will soon be celebrating her 104th birthday during the latter part of February. The couple insisted that their 55-year age gap is quite irrelevant and that people need to live and let live. They are tired of the kind of responses coming in their direction.
The couple claims they are committed to having a long-term relationship and they are really trying to make the most of whatever life Ms. Riit has left. “We feel that the 55-year-long age gap is not something that has to be a reason for us to break up. It’s all wholesome love and nothing more and nothing less”- she added
For now, Mr. Soeson mentioned how he is on the lookout to seek a permanent type of residency on the basis that Ms Riit and her partner are committed to having the longest kind of relationship.
So far, things have yet to fall in their favor. The visa application so far has been refused and that’s not something they’re happy about. But they do hope things are going to go down well soon, despite critics’ views.
