Miracle Pogue, a 24-year-old woman who married 85-year-old Charles Pogue, says she wants children with her husband.
Charles proposed in February 2020, and they married last summer.
Miracle, who is from Mississippi, told the Daily Mail that she is desperate to start a family with Charles and has begun looking into IVF.
“I want him to have another generation. We’re looking to go to an IVF clinic to talk about our options,” she said.
“We went to an IVF clinic before but we really felt the pre-judgment even though they don’t know me and it was quite overwhelming.
“Now I’m forgetting it as long as they give me my baby. Maybe Charles’s age will stop us from having children but I have an open mind. It may not work.”
Miracle also shared her struggles with being married to her octogenarian husband.
She said she gets backlash on social media from people who accuse her of marrying Charles for his money.
“People were saying I’m using Charles, he doesn’t know what’s going on and saying I should be ashamed,” she said.
“Of course, people mention finances but I’m a nurse. I was starting medical school when I met him.”
She further said that she can provide for herself and it gives her joy to be chosen by him.
“I will be well off with or without Charles, it’s a choice to be with him and it makes me feel good that he chooses me,” she added.
“It’s so crazy that people come after me, as he’s the older one. He’s with me of his own free will, he chose me.”
