The story is based on real life events and participants with changed names.
It is hard to think of a relationship like this. However, in such situations to our help comes the cliché: “Love has no limits” and it actually proves to be true. Because otherwise, it would be beyond one’s strength to explain a relationship between a 20-year-old university student and a 50-year-old businessman.
Tom had met Jason in Australia where he was on a concert tour, as he was a young singer climbing the staircase of fame. Jason was a local businessman, and their meeting was an absolute coincidence. In 2008, after his concert in Sidney, Tom was invited to a big restaurant, where the sponsors had arranged dinner for the participants. One of these sponsors was the white-haired prominent businessman Jason Turanski. They shared one table and somehow their conversation was very warm and flowing. When everyone else the table they were still there continuing their talk and at a certain moment, Jason asked Tom if he has a girlfriend, because few people knew about Tom’s orientation. However, so as Tom saw Jason as a reliable person, he directly told him that he was gay. That made Jason’s evening because he liked Tom a lot.
Tom was not keen on old men, but he was pissed off with the immature attitude and tempers of the boys he met. Both started meeting more often and going to different places, as it was nice for Tom to spend his time with Jason, he added a few days longer to his AU tour, which became a vacation. In September 2008, they became boyfriends as Jason asked Tom’s hand after that Tom stopped hiding his sexual orientation and publicly announced that he was gay, and that he is in a relationship with a man. Tom realized that he gets on quite well with the age difference between them and had no discomfort about going out with Jason. As their feelings were getting stronger, later, in 2011, they had an amazing wedding, and life shared seemed to be nicer for them. In the upcoming years, they adopted two children who are now growing quite healthily and happily with their two fathers.
Life is such a weird place, and happiness is found in the least expected places. Looking for your happiness in standard things and ways perhaps today is an old-fashioned method and actually, doesn’t seem to work that well. Set aside your prejudices and try something brand new, because as A.Einstein says: “A person who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
