‘I feel like a virgin again’ Brit pensioner, 80, marrying Egyptian toyboy, 35

A British pensioner is planning to marry a 35-year-old Egyptian toyboy – despite being 45 years older than him.

Iris Jones, 80, fell head-over-heels in love with unemployed Egyptian Mohamed Ahmed Irbriham after meeting him on Facebook.

They tried to get married within days of their first meeting in Cairo, but were unsuccessful due to incorrect paperwork, and is now saving up to go back and do it properly.

Iris is certain that Mohamed has good intentions and is not looking for an easy route to Britain or her money, despite opposition from her family.

She said: “If he’s marrying me for my fortune then he’ll be sadly disappointed because I live on a pension. I don’t suffer fools gladly.

“I’m honest and truthful and I told him straight away he couldn’t be a freeloader.”

Iris added that her time in Egypt had been fun and care-free and brought out her rebellious streak.

She said: “In Egypt we were quite frivolous, going out to the best restaurants all the time and we split everything in half.

“He’s even agreed to sign a prenup because it’s me he wants – not my house. I’ve spent years making other people happy, now I just want to marry the man I love before I die.

“I’ve always been a bit of a rebel and he’s just perfect for me.”

Speaking on the first time the couple became intimate, she admits it took place in a “sleazy” Cairo hotel but was romantic nonetheless.

She said: “It was incredible. I felt like a virgin again. It wasn’t easy but it was very loving and romantic.

“My ex-husband said I was frigid when we divorced 40 years ago but now I know I’m certainly not.”

Elderly Iris relies on a £200 weekly pension payout to get by but owns her own £220,000 bungalow, while unemployed Mohamed was forced to quit his job after his boss refused to give him time off to spend with Iris.

He says: “This is not about the money. Money is not everything. It cannot buy you happiness.

“Love has no age and knows no limits. Iris and I found we understood each other well and felt the tenderness. I do not care about anyone’s opinion – only what feels good to me.

“Iris is wonderful, understanding and compassionate. We share the same views about lots of things. I’m not interested in the money. I work as a quality inspector in the field of welding materials and have travelled to many countries.

“It is not right people look at everything through materialism. If they do, they have no feelings.”

The relationship has not gone down well with Iris’ younger son Darren, 53, who is struggling to accept the relationship while her older son Steve, 54, has reluctantly given the couple the green light.

She said: “Steve is a bit wary but I’m sure, given time, he will accept Mohamed as a father.

“But Darren is worried Mohamed is just after my money and we had a big row which resulted in me asking him to leave the house. We’ve made up since but I’ve asked him not to talk about it – I don’t want to argue.”

While in Cairo, Iris was introduced to her future mother-in-law, 70, and said: “She was marvellous and glad her son had found the woman he had been looking for.

The pensioner is determined to marry Mohamed and said: “I’ve met the right person aged 80 and it’s true love. I’ve never known anything like it and I can’t live without him.

“I’ll do what it takes, even sell up and go to a different country with him. I worry I’ll die before I get a chance to marry.

“Mohamed says we might not have much time but that I will never die because I will always be in his heart.

“His English isn’t amazing and he can get words mixed up, but who needs language when you are in love?”

Her son Darren said: “I’d rather keep my views to myself. I just want to stay on the fence. She’s old enough to make her own mistakes.”
