A 19-year-old has married her now husband despite their 16 year age gap and being just four years older than his 15-year-old daughter.
Carrie Jett met her husband, audio visual programmer, Marc, 35, online via the social media site, Whisper, just one day before her 18th birthday.
The couple, who live together in Annapolis, Maryland, say that although they were physically attracted to each other, they never expected to fall in love.
However, they found that their conversations flowed easily, and they were soon besotted with each other.

Marc already has a teenage daughter, Kaelyn, 15, from a previous relationship, who approves of her father’s relationship and enjoys shopping trips and watching TV with her new step-mum.
‘We met on the day before my eighteenth birthday on Whisper. We were both bored and just wanted to hang out with someone,’ said Carrie.
The couple (pictured on their wedding day) were married in September last year and are now planning to start a family together
The couple met on the social media site Whisper the day before Carrie’s 18th birthday and while they found each other attractive they never thought they would fall in love
‘Nether him nor I thought that we were going to fall in love. We were both very attracted to each other and continued texting and seeing each other about once a week until I moved in with him four months after we met, we got married five months after.
‘I was very attracted to his looks when I first saw a photo of him, he kept me attracted with his kind and fun personality.
‘He was first attracted to my looks as well, but I really caught his attention and he kept talking to me after the night we met when I told him to text me and let me know that he got home safe.’
The couple moved in together just four months into their relationship before marrying a month later
While Marc’s family was accepting of Carrie she says that her own struggled to come to terms with her relationship
Marc’s family welcomed Carrie with open arms, but it took her family a little longer to come around to the idea of their 16-year age gap.
Despite having only been together for a year-and-a-half, Carrie and Marc have been through a lot already after sadly suffering a miscarriage in January this year.
‘The age gap between Marc and I is sixteen years. Neither of us really mind that gap at all, but my family was not so accepting of it and some of them still don’t approve of it,’ explained Carrie.
‘His family was and is very welcoming of me and my age. They just want whatever woman Marc is with to make him happy.

Carrie says that she and Kaelyn get along quite well and that she approves of their relationship
‘Marc’s daughter is fifteen-years-old. Her name is Kaelyn and she does approve of me.
‘We get along pretty well, she enjoys watching TV late at night with me or going to the mall.
‘My family however really did not respond well to Marc. I left the path that they wanted me to go down and I found someone who makes me incredibly happy and some of my family has come to be OK with it.
The couple, who sadly suffered a miscarriage this year, are now hoping to have two or three children of their own
‘My family on my dad’s side does not talk to me at all due to my relationship with Marc. It is something that they do not agree with and do not accept.
‘My mother and I talk frequently, and she has grown to accept my relationship. My ex-step mum has been very welcoming of my husband since the day she met him. We go to her house and hang out all the time.
‘The most difficult part of our relationship happened early this year. We found out that we were pregnant in December, however we miscarried in January and many doctors’ appointments as my hormone levels did not go back down how they should have.
‘We both hope to have children, we want two or three of them.’
The couple receive stares from strangers when they are out and about, but they have grown used to them.
‘If someone does not approve of my relationship or might criticise it then they have every right to do so, if it makes them happy or feel better,’ said Carrie.
‘I also have a right to be happy and that is why I am with Marc. He makes me so happy and feel so loved.
‘Most people don’t really say anything, but they do give us odd looks. We don’t look like your average couple and it makes people curious.
‘We have grown used to those looks though and hardly even notice them anymore.’
