A lesbian couple with a 37-year age difference has hit back at trolls who have questioned their relationship as they reveal people are confused by their relationship and will often stare at her on the street.
Julia Zelg, 27, and Eileen De Freest, 64, met on Tinder and have documented their relationship journey on their YouTube channels.
The couple have been married for three years and have now and recently spoken on the Later Dater podcast.
Julia and Eileen shared the story of how they met and spoke openly about the criticism they have received about their romance.
The couple even invited the whole world to their wedding by sharing a video of the event with their subscribers.
Julia explained: “People sometimes stare at us a little bit or they just assume that Eileen is my mother.
“When we’re somewhere and people say Eileen is my mom and I say we’re actually married, they’re usually very embarrassed.”
The couple both have YouTube accounts where they share vlogs and question-and-answer videos about their relationship.
You recently confessed that strangers are much more rude online where they can hide behind their anonymity.
Julia continued, “Sometimes they feel like they can say anything because they don’t show their face.
“We’ve heard really horrible things, like people calling me a gold digger or saying I have problems with my mother.
“Or in Eileen’s case, someone called her a pedophile, which is gross, I’m almost 30.”
Julia had previously revealed that she had proposed to Eileen in 2019 just before Christmas.
Julia said: “She is the most amazing person I have ever met.
“She’s just my soulmate.

“I was just going to enjoy my single life and have fun and stuff and that’s when I met her and just fell in love with her.
“We are both really very happy.
“Why is it so wrong that we are two women and have a big age difference?
“There’s nothing wrong and it’s none of your business.”
Despite the abuse they have received, many people have supported the couple.
One person said, “You’re both consenting adults and don’t hurt anyone, go ahead with what makes you happy.”
Another agreed, saying: “Two consenting adults in an honest, loving relationship. Nothing is more precious than that.”
