Woman, 36, marries son's 15-yr-old friend

Lisa Clark was 36 when she fell for her teenage son's friend and ended up marrying him and having two children together

 

A woman who married her son's 15-year-old friend got emotional during a TV appearance on This Morning talking about their relaitonship.

Lisa Clark, from Georgia in America, fell for the teenager when she was 36 and claims he initially told her he was 17 when he was actually 14.

They confided in each other while she was going through a messy divorce and her family accepted the relationship, despite her ending up in jail because of it.

She told hosts Eammon Holmes and Ruth Langsford: "When you have two people who have very low self esteem who come together. I was drinking a lot. My dad had just died, I was going through a bad divorce of being cheated on a lot.

"There was a lot of issues. He was just there and very persistent and it just happened. It was crazy. It was the stupidest thing I've ever done. Wrong place, wrong time, something I deeply regret."

Lisa eventually fell pregnant and the pair were able to marry when he turned 15 due to the laws in Georgia, although she was later arrested for her relationship with him when he was younger.

She served time in jail but the pair got back together when she was released and had another child.

Eamonn told her: "In theory, you are a sex offender, many would class you as a sex offender or a paedophile."

Lisa responded: "A paedophile is someone who is attracted to someone who hasn't reached puberty yet," adding: "It was so long ago now, I've moved on, it's not a part of my life now."

The pair are now separated and she insists they are focusing on co-parenting their two children and she has put the relationship and her mistake behind her.
