A 24-year-old man has hit back at critics who branded him a “necrophiliac” for falling in love with and marrying a 61-year-old woman. Cheryl McGregor and her husband Quran met when he was only 15 but didn’t begin their romantic relationship until he was 23. Now, they’re happily showcasing their love on TikTok and refuse to bow to all the haters.
- People are really mean and nasty. There’s no limit to the number of terrible things people have said to the couple. “You married your grandma,” “You’re a fossil,” “This is sick,” “This is necrophilia,” “He’s using you…” The list of insults goes on and on. Why are people so horrible?
- Cheryl and Quran got married in September 2021. While they originally met years ago when Quran worked at a fast food spot with Cheryl’s son Chris, they lost touch until November 2020 when they came in contact again and began to connect on a “spiritual level.” Three months after they became a couple, Quran proposed with a $3,000 ring.
- Quran was nervous to ask Cheryl to marry him. He worried about how the grandmother of 17 might respond but had faith enough in their love to drum up the courage to propose. “I was extremely nervous before and I tried my best to keep my composure but I was crying as soon as we entered the parking lot,” Quran said.
- There are plenty of people who find their love sweet. Not everyone is a hater. They still have a lot of fans online who believe love is fantastic no matter who it’s between. “Here’s the thing, they hate but if you two are happy and love each other, that’s all that should matter! Keep doing you,” one supporter wrote. Another added: “If they are happy, leave them alone!”
