Grandmother's Perfect Marriage To Younger Man Turns Into Nightmare

When Anne-Marie met Omar in 2005, there was an instant connection. The handsome and persistent younger man promised to “treat her like a queen” and that “she would never want for anything.” Now she has debt that will take her 17 years to pay back.

After they fell in love he said he needed a place to live.

“He said he was terrible with money and was struggling to pay rent,” Anne-Marie told Metro. “It was a natural progression that he would come and move in with me.”

So, she made a trip to the Gambia since his student visa ran out while he was living in the UK. He also asked for money to send to his family. So she, complied and married him in his home country in 2006.

Things quickly went south.

“The day after we were married there was an argument,” Anne-Marie recalls. “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.'”

Ann-Marie, a mother of two and grandmother, was terrified and knew she made a mistake. Things only go worse when they got back to the UK. She says he became very violent and forced her to give him money, take out credit cards and loans.

Now she has almost $20,000 in debt, which will take her about 17 years to pay off. She’s been trying to track him down since their divorce in 2012 to make him pay his share.
