Marriage to Younger Man Quickly Becomes Grandmother's Worst Nightmare

Anne-Marie met 27-year-old Gambian Omar back in 2005 and there was an instant connection.

“He told me “stay with me and you’ll never want for anything, I’ll treat you like a queen,”’ she said.
The two ended up in a relationship and it wasn’t long before they were deeply in love.

The relationship progressed and 43-year-old Anne-Marie ended up taking a trip to Gambia.

Omar had been residing in the UK on a student visa, but it expired before he finished his classes. The couple married in 2006 in Gambia.

“It was a very wonderful day, very humbling, and very lovely,” Anne-Marie commented.

However, she knew in her heart something was wrong. “I still had doubts on my wedding day, it was always in the back of my mind.”

“The day after we were married there was an argument. His eyes were like bulging out of his head. He put his face in my face and he said “you are my wife now. You do as you’re told now.” I was really frightened. And then I thought “oh my god, what have I done. I really think I’ve made a big mistake here.”

Anne Marie continued with her story: “It was spiraling debts, constant violence, no money, saying no to the kids when they wanted something.”

The dysfunctional, abusive relationship went on for five years before Omar disappeared in 2010.
The final tally of money given to Omar by the mother and now grandmother was more than $20,000, and she says it will take her many years to pay off that big a sum.
