A Kenyan student in the United States is ready to marry her 54-year-old American lover after a year of dating.
In an interview with Mail Online, 21-year-old Rahab Kimani said she met Joe Singiser a year ago while working at a nursing home in New Jersey. Rahab, a student and a home health aide, however, says that her friends got disgusted by her choice of partner due to the age difference between them.
“I thought he was very attractive and immediately wanted him,” she revealed. “I really liked his big muscles and that everyone at work was afraid of him.”
She also says that her family was not impressed after learning the age gap between them, but she says that she feels comfortable with him.
“I just see him as my boyfriend and my best friend. If anything, the difference is that I take this relationship as more serious than previous ones. It took everyone a long time, but they are finally understanding of us being together.” She said.
Singiser, who is Rahab’s supervisor at work is a father of four and says that he fell in love with her at first sight upon noticing her beautiful smile from across the room.
“We get looks while in public all the time,” Rahab said. “Someone even came up to me once and said I should be ashamed of myself because I just want his money. I did get sensitive, but I just walked away.”
She said they live in the same house and are now planning to get married and have children together.
