24 years old lady marries 85 years old man

...plans to start family

CITIZENS COMPASS– A 24 years old Mississippi woman who married an 85 years old man says she’s ready to start a family with her new newly found love.

Miracle Pogue, 24, met hubby Charles, 85, while working at a laundromat in Starkville in 2019, with the pair forming a friendship that turned romantic a year later.

Charles proposed in February 2020, and the couple went on to wed last summer.

Miracle told Kennedy News of the moment she learned about her husband’s advanced age, saying: “I found out in conversation when we asked each other our date of birth and he said he was born in 1937.”

“I never even placed his age, we just wanted to see how it went. I don’t care if he’s 100 or 55, I like him for him. I thought he was maybe 60 or 70 because he looks so good,” she added. “He’s always up and active.”

Miracle says her mom Tamika Phillips, 45, and grandfather Joe Brown, 72, were supportive of the relationship from the start. However, her dad, Kareem Phillips, 47, was harder to convince.

  • My grandad said if I was happy and it’s what I want to do then he’s happy. My dad was like ‘hell no ma’am, not at all,’” the bride explained. “It took a lot of time to convince him.”

“If he didn’t come to my wedding, he would have lost me forever,” she continued. “I told him I needed his support and to walk me down the aisle. Once he got to meet Charles and talk to him, he loved him.”
