A 60-year-old pastor has married his pregnant teenage girlfriend – with the blessing of his first wife.
Thom Miller met his first wife, 44-year-old Belinda, who had seven children from a previous marriage, eight years ago.
But having discussed polygamy after Mrs Miller suggested finding another woman to be part of the family, the pair from Mansfield, Ohio, decided to welcome 19-year-old Reba Kerfootruba into their relationship.
He said the couple bumped into her while volunteering at the church and she moved into their home shortly after.
Mr Miller said: “I’ve known Reba for a long time, then she moved away and I hadn’t seen her for years.
“When she hugged me, it wasn’t a normal hug and I wanted to keep hugging her and I realised, wow, I’m really appreciating this woman.”
Belinda said: “I wanted to have more of a family, I wanted to be complete, and having another lady in the house not only makes our family as a whole, but individually it’s a beautiful thing because it’s like having a sister around.”
The pair married at the his church – exactly seven years after Thom married Belinda.
