Marina Balmasheva and her stepson got married in July 2020. They share a 14 year age gap.
Some incidents garner a lot of attention because of their "weirdness" factor. One such story was reported from Russia. One stepmother fell in love with her husband's son and married him. They welcomed their first child recently.
According to news.com.au, Marina Balmasheva and Alexey Shavyrin tied the knot and decided to start a family together. They adopted five children and had a happy life together until Alexey uncovered the secrets of his wife.
He realized that his wife was having an extramarital affair with none other than his own son, Vladimir ‘Vova’ Shavyrin. Vladimir was just 7-years-old when he met his stepmother Marina. He grew up in front of her. However, that did not stop either of them from pursuing each other.
Their affair allegedly started when Vladimir returned home from university during his break.
Soon, Alexey caught his wife and son red-handed. According to The Sun, the man stated, "I could not fall asleep one night when I heard them having sex. Then I understood that Marina was cheating on me with my son, in a few minutes she just came and lay down next to me. I didn’t tell her a word that night."
Alexey was furious and demanded a divorce from Marina. He even claimed that it was her who "seduced" his son. He stated, "Vova is not capable of that. He had not had a girlfriend before her. They were not shy to have sex while I was at home. I would have forgiven her cheating if it wasn't my son."
Marina, on the other hand, said that her relationship with Vladimir happened only after her marriage fell apart. She also stated that she did not regret any of her actions.
Meanwhile, months after their relationship became public, Vladimir and Marina tied the knot in July 2020.
However, before the wedding, Marina and her husband signed a prenup to make sure she would not lose any of her money or assets in case of a divorce. Speaking of the prenup, Marina stated, "While he is finding his feet, all expenses are on me. I am not his sponsor," according to Mirror Online.
Additionally, the woman with more than half a million followers on Instagram also went through numerous plastic surgery procedures. She got rid of her excess skin with abdominoplasty and other procedures including face and neck lifts. "So many people tell me to use makeup - make lashes, and curl my pubic hair - because of my young husband," She shared. "But there is one thing - he fell in love with me with all my scars from plastic surgeries, cellulite, excessive skin, and personality," she added.
Today, 21-year-old Vladimir and 35-year-old Marina are parents to their firstborn. Marina believes her new husband will be a "wonderful father" to their baby. Previously, she had stated that her husband's mother would be helping them when the baby arrives. "I have an interesting experience given that my former mother-in-law was a former mother-in-law of my current mother-in-law," she said.
