A young woman has revealed that she had an affair with her fiancé’s 61-year-old father and that they now have a five-month-old son together, but confessed that her ex still doesn’t want to talk to either of them.

Walmart employee Mackenzie was grateful when her fiancé’s father, Jeff Scholl, who was going through his own divorce, offered her a shoulder to cry on.
The couple soon began a six-month affair, but Mackenzie confessed that she was sorry that she was not honest and open about her feelings for Jeff, 36 years her senior, towards his wife and son, with whom she dated for six years. and has decided not to give a name.
Mackenzie and father-of-four Jeff, who are still together and share son Wyatt, say they were eventually caught in 2018, but this only secured their love for each other – despite some family members now refusing to speak to them.
Both Jeff’s son and one of his daughters, as well as his ex-wife, are no longer in any relationship with the couple, while Mackenzie’s brother also cut her off.

Mackenzie said, “The only thing I regret is that I am not being honest and started a relationship with Jeff before our previous relationships ended. We should have just been honest about our feelings and said we weren’t happy.
‘There is emotional deception and there is physical deception. The emotional deception lasted about a year and the physical was six months. I was with his son for over six years, but Jeff was always so hospitable.
“I was really unhappy in the relationship with his son at the same time Jeff was about to get divorced.”
Mackenzie claims her fiancé and his mother discovered their affair in 2018, and when both relationships ended, she and Jeff, who already had three children with his ex-wife, were able to continue their romance.

Mackenzie said, “My brother decided to stop talking to me because of what we were doing. Jeff has two daughters and one has really supported us, but one doesn’t talk to us anymore, which I understand because it hurt a lot of people.
‘We clearly didn’t want to hurt anyone. That whole year was just really tough because I miscarried before we had Wyatt. I think it was God’s way of telling us we should have children together, but not yet.
“I just want my ex and his mom to know that I regret what happened and that I feel bad.”

She said, ‘We are in a normal relationship and the age difference doesn’t bother us. It’s funny because a lot of people look at us and think our age gap is so big, but what we’ve found in each other is what we’ve been missing in our previous relationships.
‘Even though there is an age difference, we are more compatible than the people we were with before. We want to get married, but we’re just waiting for the right time. ‘
