A 74-year-old Serbian has married his 21-year-old girlfriend despite her cheating on him on reality television.
Milojko “Mikan” Bozic married girlfriend Milijana in a ceremony broadcast on live television.
The two rose to prominence after appearing on reality show Couples, on which Milijana cheated with a much younger man after Milojko was eliminated.
Milojko later forgave her, and the couple announced their plans to marry earlier this year.
The couple wed on September 7 in the town of Pozega in western Serbia, with parts of the event even being broadcast to the nation.
During the wedding, Milijana said: “I have been crying with happiness.
“Actually, I haven’t cried, but I did shed a few tears.”
According to local media, the adult children of the groom, as well as the bride’s parents, were not present at the ceremony.
Milijana said: “It was difficult for me that my parents weren’t there, but my mother did send me a message.”
Milojko has three children, aged 40, 35 and 30, from his first marriage, and two grandchildren, aged 13 and 11.
The couple had to marry in a registry office because the local church does not wed couples with an age gap over 15 years.
Regarding the criticism of their age difference, Milijana commented: “They don’t hurt me, to me it is funny.”
It appears as though the 74-year-old groom managed to consummate the marriage as his young bride said: “It was a crazy wedding night, that’s all I’m going to say.
“Milojko’s back hurt, but he managed it well.”
The “age-gap couple” will reportedly travel to Greece for their honeymoon.
Speaking after cheating on Milojko with 35-year-old married man Aleksandar Pozgaj, Milijana said: “We were intimate. We didn’t have full sex … there was also touching and cuddling.”
She added that she had decided to stay with Milojko because he was “more beautiful”, and he opted to forgive the indiscretion.
Back in March, the couple opened up about their own insane sex life, claiming despite their 53-year-age gap they have sex every day.

Milijana said: “We have sex almost every day, I don’t see what is strange with that. But since Mikan had his heart operation, I have to go easy on him in bed.
“But he is like a young man when it comes to sex, he doesn’t need Viagra.
“Although, I don’t know much about younger men, as I’ve always been with men older than me.”
Milijana added that it was Milojko’s looks which attracted him to her, saying: “I don’t like young guys, I’ve liked older men since forever.
“For his years, he looks perfect. I don’t care what other people think and say. I’ve known Mikan all my life, my neighbours and I used to help him when he was sick, that’s when our love was born.”
