A teenager is so eager to marry his best friend's mother, not minding that she's more than twice his age. 18-year-old Chase Gabbard has proposed "hundreds of times" to mum-of-three Jaimee Brown, 39. But Jaimee is waiting for her divorce to be finalized so the wedding can take place. They met when Chase was 11 after he became best friends with Jaimee's son Jaice, now 16. Shortly after they met, Chase made a move on Jaimee. The pair, from Corbin, Kentucky, USA, spent years getting to know one another and became closer from 2013 when they began jogging together to help her lose weight. With Chase's help, Jaimee shed more than seven stone within a year. But it wasn’t until Chase turned 18 that he realised he was attracted to his best friend’s mother and kissed her. Shocked by their attraction to one another, the pair began dating and found they had a lot in common. They also claim Jaice is happy for them. Chase and Jaice Jaimee, a claims agent, said: I had no idea about Chase or my feelings before he kissed me, it was a total shock but since then we have been inseparable.I have three kids, so the first thing was that I had to be sure they were OK with it, as they are my number one priority.But none of them had a problem, we all loved each other anyway and when we told Jaice he was fine with it too – they are still best friends.The first proposal happened during a scavenger hunt was a surprise, I had no idea, I went all over town to end in my bathroom closet.I don’t think you can put a time limit on love, if you know you know.I have to wait for my divorce to come through, but we have already planned our beautiful wedding and written our own vows. Two months after he first took a "gamble" and kissed Jaimee, Chase proposed to her through a scavenger hunt and since claims he has asked her to marry him up to 300 times – nearly once a day.His proposals have ranged from popping the question in a relaxed way to having "Marry Me" written on a hot sauce packet.Chase, a handyman, said: I love Jaimee’s personality, I knew I wanted to marry her straight away. There are so many things I like about her, she has a great sense of humour, she stops me from being lazy and there are so many other things. Jaimee and Chase's mothers initially struggled with the relationship as Jaimee went to school with Chase’s mother. But they have now given their blessing.Jaimee said: "He is my son’s best friend and I went to school with his mother. There was friction, but now she doesn’t seem to care and is a lot more supportive now."Now the whole family hang out together, with the couple even going on double-dates with oldest son Jaice.Chase has had to embrace the role of stepfather to Jaimee’s three children and one of the challenges of that is that he has to walk the line between friend and father. But Jaice said he and Chase are still "best friends" despite Chase now technically being his stepdad.The post Teenager can't wait to marry his best friend's mum who is more than twice his age appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
