Anna Fuller, 23, from Ontario, Canada, met accountant and dad-of-two Rob Hunter, who is 24 years her senior, while out celebrating her 17th birthday.
Believing an older, wealthy man would make her feel more secure, she started seeing him – and ended up falling for him.
Now the couple, who have been together for six years, are getting married after Rob popped the question while they were on holiday in Mexico earlier this month, despite Anna’s mum refusing to ever meet her husband-to-be.
“At first it was about the money for me, as I was a young teenager who grew up in a pretty low-class family and I was used to being spoiled and getting whatever I wanted regardless, so in my head the thought of an older man with security fit the bill – no pun intended,” Anna explained.
“We met outside a bar – I told him I was 18. Personally, the age gap hasn’t affected me that much.”
Anna’s energetic and loud personality was an instant attraction for Rob, and after getting to know him she developed “serious feelings” for him, too.
“I think it was mainly because he let me be the loud, obnoxious teenager I was and accepted that about me; dealing with all my issues and problems like they were his,” Anna said.
“He really cared, and he did everything in his power to show me that. I think what attracted him to me was my ability to always be able to have fun, I was super energetic and loud and funny.
“Not to mention I was also much younger, which at the start of our relationship I’m sure had an impact.”
While Anna’s grandmother, who passed away in January 2016, accepted their relationship, other members of their families needed more convincing.
“At first my family lost their minds,” Anna said. “They were livid. The only person I had that accepted us from the start was my grandma.
“As of 2018, most of my family have come to be very accepting and supportive of our relationship.
“My mum still has never spoke to or met Rob and doesn’t have any intention to.
“His family was a bit worried at first, but that quickly went away after actually meeting me. The only thing is, Rob’s brother and his wife can’t stand me.”
Rob’s two teenage children have come to accept Anna, with them meeting after eight months of dating their dad.
“Although we do plan to get married one day, years from now, not in the near future, we don’t plan on having children together he has two of his own, while I have five siblings and work with young children,” Anna explained.
“I also like to spoil and spend money on myself a lot, so I just don’t feel like kids are on the cards for me in general or for us and our relationship.
“I get along with Rob’s kids. They’re teenagers so they’re kind of in that stage of doing their own thing now.”
Coming from a close-knit family, Anna says the most difficult part of her relationship with Rob was when she moved in with him, as she is now four hours away from her home.
“I moved out three months after meeting Rob and stayed in my town for three years, and then moved to his town four hours away,” she said.
“It affects me in the sense that I miss my family. For Rob not much has changed – other than he has a built-in maid now.
“Our problems mainly consist of Rob not doing the laundry or dishes after I work nine hour days with kids, and I get frustrated because of it, so I just nag until he does it.
“But the biggest problems have been with me not being able to see my family as much as I’d like, and the discipline of his children – I feel he’s too lax, while he feels I’m too strict.
“We just talk it out and hope that we come to a solution everyone’s happy with.”
Anna admitted that sometimes she gets mistaken for Rob’s daughter when they’re out together in public.
The couple do their best to ignore online trolls making judgements about their relationship.
“The younger spouse isn’t always in it for the money,” Anna said.
“There are a lot of other factors and situations that play out that actually make the money NOT worth it.”
Earlier this year we told how a woman, 18, was conned out of £5,000 by a "sugar daddy" conman she met online who claimed to earn £50m a year – and she wasn’t the only victim.
Meanwhile a sugar baby revealed how much she makes in a brutally honest chat.
