'Marrying Millions': Will the 46-year age gap between Rick and Erica ruin their happily ever after?
In 'Marrying Millions' Season 2, millionaire Rick Sykes and Erica Moser make for an interesting couple. They are in love, they enjoy each other's company and they make it very evident. But is it enough for their relationship to last?
Rick and Erica were confident about themselves even while Erica's dad wasn't. Right from the start, he thought their age difference could turn out to be a huge disappointment. He even called Rick a "grandpa" and added that he has a "dad bod". The couple is 46 years apart but the difference has hardly been an issue between them until tonight's episode where we see Erica sitting Rick down and telling him that she would like to have a serious conversation about a few things, age being one.
After Erica's father, is she too concerned about Rick being 46 years older than her? Will this stand in the way of them building a future together? Let's hope they are able to hash it out and eventually be on their path to live happily ever after. In all honesty, Erica talking about Rick's age is surprising because when her father questioned her about the same, she seemed confident and was willing to go out of her way to make her family believe why he's the best choice for her.
She explained that her love for him is genuine and there's nothing else to worry about. Elaborating on it during her confessional, Erica expressed that there's something about mature guys that attracts her. That they are financially stable and usually don't worry about their future and this is something she has looked forward to. Rick, on the other hand, has had to deal with his friends calling Erica someone who is chasing his money and not him. During a lunch with them, Rick cleared the air and said that she has a good head on her shoulders and that is something he loves about her while quashing ideas that she maybe after the dollar bills.
It's clear that they have put a lot of faith and trust in each other. Here's hoping, age doesn't play a spoilsport.
