Since falling in love, their relationship has been plain sailing but they say that a difference in preference of communication has been the most difficult obstacle to overcome as ‘old school meets new school’.

The couple first met in a McDonald’s in Chicago and Nadine says she was attracted to Steve’s wrinkles 

She says that they find communication difficult as she likes to text and he prefers ‘old school’ forms of speaking 

‘The age gap is thirty years and it has never been a problem personally for either of us,’ said Nadine.

‘My family was shocked and are still processing the relationship whereas Steve’s family was very accepting of the relationship.

‘Love comes in all different shapes, sizes and ages. Don’t judge a relationship by the photos or the age difference. Get to know their story first before judging.

‘We don’t have Kate full time so the time we have Kate and get to spend time together on the boat or with family is probably our happiest times.

Nadine says that while her family has struggled with their relationship she has been fully embraced by Steve’s

‘The most difficult thing in our relationship is forms of communication. I prefer to communicate through text and Steve likes to communicate in person or over the phone. Old school meets new school with communication.’

The pair love trying new restaurants together, keeping fit, travelling and taking pictures together but each have little quirks that annoy the other.

Nadine said that she gets positive reactions from the public about her relationship with Stephen.

‘Steve doesn’t like to find my hair all over the house, I’m always texting instead of calling, and asking questions that have already been answered and still need more details which annoys Steve,’ added Nadine.

Nadine says that she doesn’t like it when Steve uses anti-wrinkle creams and he doesn’t like finding her hair around the house 

‘I don’t like it when Steve uses anti-wrinkle creams before going to bed, not being able to read my mind, and listens to the Chris Stapleton radio station over and over.

‘When people approach us they usually have great comments to say. We haven’t really heard anything negative and those people who have negative things to say won’t say it to us in person.

‘We are no different from any other couple. We like to go to dinners, the gym together, hang out with friends, family, and neighbours, we go grocery shopping together, we live together, we boat together, we are just like any other couple.’
