A woman who had the nerve to date a man who was thirty-one years older than she is, has faced the wrath of her family.
Tereza's family didn't react well to her choice of boyfriend
Tereza Hatlas is a young lady who was kicked out of home when her parents discovered she was dating a man 31 years her senior.
According to Daily Star UK, Tereza Hatlas, now 20, fell for 51-year-old George Sekanina when she was just 18-years-old, after spotting his profile on a dating website.
The Czech Republic-based couple have been in a relationship for two years and are determined to stay together in spite of those who judge them.
Tereza soon hit it off with George after they began chatting online.
She revealed: "I was looking for an older man; fifty years or older and I caught him like a fish - a golden one of course. For five months we only chatted - two messages each, on a daily basis.
"We shared our favourite songs, pictures, life experiences and so on. And in February we met in person.
"It went well so we started seeing each other more and more; we could talk through the day and night. It was wonderful."
While George’s family were accepting of his young girlfriend, Tereza’s loved ones weren’t as approving.
Tereza explained: "His family were so kind to me from the first time they met me. Parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, all of them. They all support us, enjoy our company, and love us.
"But my family, sadly, threw me out of my home and I had to move to my bae's home. It was quick, we've officially been together for as long as we've live together, which is two years.
"They didn't agree with my choice, so I had to go; I was mentally down, it was a really dark year-and-a-half. I was struggling with myself the whole time; I had depression and was not able to wake up and go to school."
There are 31 years between Tereza and George
Even though her family didn’t support the relationship, Tereza made the decision to stick by her man.
She believes that they are so compatible because of George’s “young soul” and active lifestyle.
The loved-up 20-year-old added: "I was attracted to his charm of personality, square chin, rough serene voice, deep, loving and smart eyes and of course his silver hair.
"I always adored older men, so this age gap doesn't bother me. I am happy about it.
“My boyfriend is kind of a young soul, so I really can't imagine him with someone older. There are days I feel like the older one.”
Tereza’s family began talking to her again a year-and-a-half into the relationship.
Even though the parents are on good terms with their daughter, they are still unwilling to meet George.
The student said: “My family and I somehow found our way back to each other. However, they still don't respect my man and they don't want to meet him. At least they are able to talk about my relationship.
"It makes me truly sad, as I found in him a missing piece of myself. Maybe time will heal everything."
The couple believes that these obstacles have made their bond even stronger.
Tereza confessed: "I wasn't really prepared for something like this, it messed with my head and it must have been really difficult for him to stand by my side - yet we got through it.
“I never cared about what other people think. That's what I recommend to anybody who criticises any relationship - mind your own business. Gay, lesbian, older, younger, it's all about happiness and love."
