Reba, 19, recently “spiritually” wed 61-year-old Thom and says despite their 41-year age gap, she knows she’s with the love of her life.
“I’ve always had the thought of being with Thom. I felt safe around him. He was a protector to me, somebody I could look up to,” says Reba, who met Thom when she was 8.

She says that a year ago, she reconnected with Thom and they started dating.
“Things got serious between me and Thom. He told me he was married, but it didn’t bother me,” Reba says. “We did talk about how it would be if I was his second wife, being that wife who takes care of your husband, takes care of the house, takes care of the kids.”
Reba says that after dating Thom for two months, he proposed to her twice.
