A couple in Thailand is causing people to talk about their relationship because of the age difference between them.

19-year-old Wuthichai Chantaraj met his fiance, Janla Namuangrak, when he was only 10 years old and she was 47 when Janla moved into Wuthichai’s neighbourhood.

Their first interaction was when Wuthichai used to help Janla out around the house with chores because she was living by herself after being divorced from her husband.

When Wuthichai turned 17, he started developing feelings for Janla and they eventually became a couple, but they kept their relationship a secret from everyone until the start of this year which is also when their story started making headlines in Thailand.

“Wuthichai has been like a superhero for me. He helped me every day. Then when he was older we started to have feelings for each other. I was surprised because I have known him since he was a child. When we told people we were in love, they thought i was crazy. My children were shocked, but he makes me feel young again and we have stayed together. We’re happy. We will get married.”

The couple has been going on dates in town and displaying copious amounts of PDA ever since they announced their relationship to everyone and even though they know that a lot of people are not happy with them, they claim that their happiness is the only thing that matters between them.
