Man divorces his wife of eight years marries her mother

Clive Bunden and his wife Brenda, from Warrington, Cheshire, have now been together for more than three decades, despite the fact that he was married to her daughter Irene in 1977.

He was even arrested after he asked her to marry him but, undeterred, they made history when the law was changed in 2007 and they tied the knot.

It is fair to say their unusual coupling raised a few eyebrows. But 10 years on, they have no regrets.  “People thought we wouldn’t last but we are stronger than ever,” said Clive, 65.

“We’re together 24/7 and there’s a magic to it.”

Brenda, 77, added: “Clive is a gentleman and he looks after me. I can get a bit argumentative but he quietens me down.”

Brenda wasn’t such a fan of Clive when he got together with her daughter Irene.

In fact, she disliked him the moment she saw him.
