It's her money not thiers. They are not entitled to inherit her money unless she chooses to leave it to them.

This is true. Parents don't always leave their money to their kids, anyway. That's kind of an erroneous assumption, that they do that. Some do, of course. Others leave all or part of their assets to charitable organizations, their alma mater, research institutions, whatever. Sometimes adult children who assume they'll be getting a windfall, experience a rude awakening. Inheritances wouldn't be taken for granted.

I answered that idea based on someone else here mentioning it.

The elderly definitely can be vulnerable, just as the very young can be vulnerable. Although there's no saying this is definitely a case of usury, it DOES make one wonder when there is this significant an age difference, whether one or the other is being used in some way, and therefore it is bound to raise some questions. Again, that's not saying this can't be true love (after three weeks). And yes, the woman does have a right to be happy too. But will there be questions? On the part of the family who loves her? Well, of course. Families do look out for one another. That's our job.
It does in a case involving a 19-year-old, who proposes marriage after just 2 weeks of dating. We have no idea if there's major money involved; the bride could just be living off her late husband's social security check, and some modest savings. She could have a reverse-mortgage on her home, so there would be nothing to inherit, in terms of real estate. In some respects, it looks a little fishy, but in the absence of more info. ...meh.

My husbands ex wife( aged 51-2 ? ) just married a 24 yr old . They seem to be thrilled and I am thrilled she is out of my hair for a few years .

Alot of men are starting to go for more mature ladies , they don't have to be loaded . We just simply know what we want and hopefully by that time who we are . As far as family feeling unloved and forsaken . My kids dumped me a long time ago because I wasn't a fountain of money so everything I have is going to St. Judes anyway . No problem !

^^^^^ Yes, this!

I bet it’s been WAY more than 3 times.

I’m still stuck on the fact that they met at Chuck E. Cheese.

Well, absolutely. I wasn't really just talking about money, though. That was something brought up on the thread as the article didn't say anything about it (I don't think). So my references to inheritance were answering that. And has been stated, it doesn't look like she's rich, unless she has gold buried under the apple tree or hundred-dollar bills in the antique books, who knows.

I just meant it will bring up questions in general.

Even more than his age and her age and possible inheritance (who knows?) and all that, I'd think the biggest concern here would be knowing one another three weeks before tying the knot. But really that's just one more thing that would be a red flag for many people. Not all but many.

And of course, having just dated a 75-year-old. As has been pointed out, that may just be a preference. People have preferences and some fall outside of the average.

Then you take his very young age, no matter what age woman he were to marry...yes...it's a fair bit younger than the average.

But...it's really all these things combined, not just one thing (IMO), that makes it seem "off." JMHO.

And of course it may all be aboveboard and a true love story. Or even just two lonely people who found solace...that's not weird at all...happens every day. So I'm not sounding the alarm, I'm just saying IMO it is not at all strange that people would do a double-take, combining all these factors.
