Daft old goat marries girl of 16

Ok the money was on me having a good rant about it. BUT…that geezer from Lost & The Green Mile at the mature age of 51 has just got himself hitched to a 16 year old. No that is not a misprint. 16 she is.

Most worrying is that as you can see from the photos above he appears to have super glued his head to her chest. Blokes eh?

Yeh back to the 35 year age gap.

So it is legal but only just. Really what sort of daft old goat is going to marry a 16 year old girl. I have a 16 year old son my husband is in his late 40’s and the thought of him marrying one of Teenwolf’s girlfriends gives me the dry boak.
I am not being hypocritical or sexist either. If one of my female pals announced she was running off with a 16 year old I think I might phone the child protection agency.

At 16 you think you know it all but you don’t. So she is off the hook for being young, naïve.

At 51 you know a damn sight more than that and should give yourself a stern talking to, a slap round the chops and a cold shower.

In years to come I suspect he will look back at himself and realise it might have been cheaper to get a t shirt printed saying ‘I am having a mid-life crisis ’rather than publically be gazing lovingly at a girl young enough to be his granddaughter.

Aye sometimes the ponytail motorbike mid-life crisis option is a lot less repellent than we thought.

    18 is just a smidging more acceptable than 16 – personally I think its disgusting

    Yes as far as I recall he narrowly avoided jail for that as the romance started quite a while before she hit the mighty age of 16.

    Mandy Smith (18) married Bill Wyman (52). That worked out well didn’t it?

    Great expression..’the bulbs are not even through the ground yet’.

  • She doesn’t look 16 and I wonder will the ‘romance’ last as she obviously isn’t going to age well…and why do stories like this always have ‘supportive’ parents in the background that think nothing of their child being swept off their feet by someone who could well be older than they are. I have no objection to spring/summer, spring/autumn or even spring/winter relationships but have to draw the line when the bulbs are not even through the ground yet….

    Hmmn….so you’re saying a 21 year old would tickle your fancy…..so to speak. Not sure about that to be honest. How low would you go indeed…interesting question….over to you

    Just a bit creepy, although the whole issue of spring-autumn relationships is an interesting one. I’m 42 and wouldn’t really have any problems about dating someone half my age. Is that wrong? How low would you go?
