marrying own step grandchild

StealthPolarBear Sat 11-Jul-09 16:22:18

urgh that's weird
It's worse IMO that he actually raised her - so presumably acted as a dad

Source 'the national enquirer' where 90% of the stories are made up by journos on crack! wink

Stretch Sat 11-Jul-09 16:23:26

Did he bring her up? shock It's a bit hmm. But they aren't blood related though are they?

FiveGoMadInDorset Sat 11-Jul-09 16:23:45

Same as Woody Allen and Mia Farrows adopted daughter.

PeedOffWithNits Sat 11-Jul-09 16:24:31

exactly stealth - if it was a new realationship within the family that introduced an old man and a young woman,and they fell in love, thats one thing, but he brought her up. makes me shudder.

It's wrong wrong wrong!!

He's raised her - ergo they are family.

If this is ok, then is it ok for someone to marry their step child - or even fostered child? Shudder.

cheesesarnie Sat 11-Jul-09 16:25:19

ew.i thought of woody allen too.

HolyGuacamole Sat 11-Jul-09 16:26:17

So wrong on so many levels. What does a 27 year old see in a 72 year old? Yuck.

FiveGoMadInDorset Sat 11-Jul-09 16:27:22

Money, status, decent divorce settlement ......

Stretch Sat 11-Jul-09 16:27:46

Maybe he thinks he's really 27 himself...? After all, 27/72..easy mistake to make...?

grin

Ugh. I am so hoping that this story is not true. Morgan Freeman is a bit of a hero of mine and this would shatter all illusions of him.

Thunderduck Sat 11-Jul-09 16:29:13

His publicist is apparently denying it. here

LaurieFairyCake Sat 11-Jul-09 16:48:05

I too hope that's not true

if it is, it's grotesque

Trillian Sat 11-Jul-09 16:51:43

Is that even legal?

StealthPolarBear Sat 11-Jul-09 17:09:40

I always liked him too, so will look forward to hearing this is a load of rubbish

CowWatcher Sat 11-Jul-09 17:12:10

more than a bit euygh. Very euygh. If its true, of course.

MrsEricBana Sat 11-Jul-09 17:14:32

Me too Stealth - def hope not true.

LaurieFairyCake Sat 11-Jul-09 17:24:47

this is now being reported on the Yahoo front page too.

It wouldn't be legal in English law if she had been raised by him as a child:
Marriage Act
"A marriage solemnized after the commencement of this Act between a man and a woman who is the daughter or grand-daughter of a former spouse of his (whether the former spouse is living or not) or who is the former spouse of his father or grandfather (whether his father or grandfather is living or not) shall not be void by reason only of that relationship if both the parties have attained the age of twenty-one at the time of the marriage and the younger party has not at any time before attaining the age of eighteen been a child of the family in relation to the other party."

Obviously the law could be different in the US, probably varies state by state.

Hopefully it's not true.
