If I was that girl’s father I’d have told her no way you are you marrying some 49 year old pervert. Those type of realationships do not end well. I pray for her and for her kids. But, I do expect the worst.
Wonder if Oona O'Neill's father said something like that. (Of course, 99% of the time it's true...)
Update via wikipedia. "Eugene O'Neill was so incensed at the union (he had refused to give his consent so that Oona could marry Chaplin before her eighteenth birthday), that he cut her out of his life, refusing all attempts by her at a reconciliation." Chaplin was 54 and had been married 3x. The marriage to Oona lasted 35 years.
