According to French daily Republicain-lorrain.fr, Elizabeth married Eric on Saturday October 4th in the parish church in the small village of Dabo in Alsace-Lorraine, north-east France, after fighting for months with French authorities for the right to marry him.
According to reports, Elizabeth met Eric's father in 1989, had a child with him in 1997, married him 2003 and divorced him in 2006. All this while Eric was her stepson. Now he's her husband...
About her separation in 2006, Elizabeth told RL
"I was not expecting it, it was a shock. I was an adult so I made do. But our daughter who was nine-years-old felt the separation very badly. She cried every day. That's when Eric was a great support for us and our relationship evolved.'
Speaking about the situation, Eric, who also has a daughter, said he did his best to comfort his half-sister, who is now his step-daughter,
'When my father left my mother, I felt abandoned. I knew how she felt. So I had to be there for both of them'
Eric and Elizabeth soon began an affair that was frowned upon by many. And when they decided to marry, French law, which prohibits all unions between step children and step-parents - even former ones, would not allow it.
The couple fought the law and finally obtained a right to marry from a local court and the day they married, Eric's father, who now supports the relationship attended.
