    Default Good News You Can Now Marry Your Mother-in-law

    Man marries his own mother-in-law after divorcing his wife and getting 500-year-old law overturned | Daily Mail Online

    A man who married his own mother-in-law after divorcing his wife of eight years and getting a 500-year-old law overturned has said his relationship is 'stronger than ever'.

    Clive Blunden, 65, and Brenda, 77, have been together for over 30 years and officially tied the knot in 2007.

    But Clive, from Warrington, Cheshire, was arrested in 1997 after the pair announced their plans to marry.

    The 65-year-old was told he could be sentenced to up to seven years in prison due to a 'lawful impediment', so the couple decided to change Brenda's surname by deed poll instead.

    Clive and Brenda first began dating in 1989, left, four years after Clive divorced from Irene Little, right, who previously said she felt her mother 'totally betrayed' her

    The 65-year-old was told he could be sentenced to up to seven years in prison due to a 'lawful impediment', so the couple decided to change Brenda's surname by deed poll instead.

    Clive then went on to work for the law to be changed, with a European Court overturning it ten years later, in 2005.

    He told the Mirror: 'People thought we wouldn't last but we are stronger than ever. We're together 24/7 and there's a magic to it.'

    She's from Farnworth, so similar setup, except her fingers are webbed as well.

    Reading that, he seems to have married her twice

    I see your comprehension skills have not improved.

    let me help you.

    1.They announced plans to marry in 1997.
    2. He was arrested in 1997 because the plan to marry would have been illegal. This could have happened when he applied to marry they ask about lawful impediment.
    3. he spent 10 years getting the law overturned.
    4. once it was legal he married her in 2007
