A woman who is six inches taller than her husband says people often mistake him for her son.
Jesika and Hunter met back in 2020 and despite their difference in height, they hit it off straight away. They're now happily married, but that doesn't stop people from speculating about their relationship.
For context, Jesika is 5 feet 7 inches, while Hunter stands at 5 feet 1 inch.
While Jesika is more than happy being the 'big spoon' and moving the 'car seat back' after Hunter drives, things haven't been all sunshine and roses.
Jesika explained: "I’ve had friends and other people ask me why I’m with someone so much shorter than me.
"We’ve gotten comments asking if he’s my son or 'if I need a real man.' I’m barely taller than average for a female."
That's not the worst part though, as it's the comments from random strangers that really take a toll: "But some of the worst come from men who they think they’d be a better partner for me, telling me they could please me better or be what I need. It's not their relationship and it doesn't concern them.
"We're happy and that's all that matters."
But for anyone who does care, Jesika went on to say that they have a great sex life: "Aren't we all the same lying down? In fact, some positions are a lot easier with Hunter being short. Honestly, it’s probably the best sex I’ve ever had."
While Jesika is happy to hit back at those who joke about their relationship, Hunter says the jabs about hit height feel like a double standard.
"If you make jokes about someone’s weight, it’s terrible and of course it is," he said.
"But everyone feels like it’s OK to make fun of height like it’s no big deal. I’ve lived like this for my entire life. All of the people I’ve dated before have been much taller than me, so it’s never bothered me."
Hunter went on to say that he worries about how the jokes might impact his partner: "I’ve just always been more concerned about how the other person feels about it."
Still, Jesika is more than happy with her relationship and the pair regularly documenting it TikTok - they've even helped some people feel more comfortable about their own height differences.
"We found accidentally on TikTok that people love seeing other couples with our type of height difference," she said.
"So many other men or women said they’re in a similar situation and were so happy to see our posts."
Fair play to the couple and let's hear it for all the short kings out there!
