A couple with a 53-year age gap have a TikTok channel devoted to them kissing and miming songs to each other - which has over 14,000 followers and nearly 105,000 likes.
Although Gary and Almeda Hardwick have been on TikTok for some time now, they've been using it as a means to keep themselves occupied during the coronavirus pandemic.
Most people on TikTok will mime and dance along to different music which is what 21-year-old Gary and his 74-year-old wife have been doing - with a lot more snogging involved for good measure.
The pair from Tennessee, who have been together for three years, are following what the rest of the world
is should be doing and staying indoors in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).
Gary and Almeda met at her son's funeral then two weeks later the pair were married after she knew that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.
The couple's relationship is much more than their smooching on TikTok. When they appeared on Loose Women two years ago, they bragged about their healthy sex life. Good for them.
Revealing that they first had sex on their wedding night (when Gary was 18), he said: "Everything about her from her beautiful eyes but mainly her personality - her personality has always been amazing."
Gary and Almeda also run their YouTube channel and sent a message to their critics where they said: "I would say we have found happiness.
"We want to let people know that they too have someone regardless of their age, same-sex relationship and inter-racial relationships. Let us have our happiness and find your own way of happiness."
Another married couple who have had to defend themselves against backlash are Stefani Walper, 25, and her 70-year-old husband Don.
Stef, who has been with Don for five years and has a two-year-old son with him, said: "My mom was not a fan at all, my dad was not a fan, my brother was absolutely not a fan as well. So nobody was really on Don's team.
"I had just turned 20, like just. So I think for my side of the family, they were a little bit like, 'Whoa, what are you doing?' They thought I was making a mistake, I got myself into a situation."
Don added: "People on the street, they do that second take or third take or whatever it is or make a comment if I have Lachlan out for a walk or something and someone says, 'oh, grandpa's got the little boy today', I don't even correct them."
