Despite Georges' view about not caring about what people say, the two have faced opposition from family and society.

The two further explained how Catherine's child could not understand why she would date someone younger than them, as her firstborn is 43 while her last last born is 35. 

George’s sister, Mary, said she was heartbroken to learn about the relationship. “I have started accepting it happened. The age gap is too much when someone is 50 years older than you. They are confusing love and madness,” Mary said. 

The two are lovestruck and determined to make their relationship work.
