A woman who is a noticeable six inches taller than her husband has revealed people often mistake her partner for her son and she's fed up of harsh comments from trolls.
Jesika, 30, from Arizona, US, stands at 5ft 7in and her taller stance sees her grabbing things off the shelves for 5ft 1in husband Hunter, 31.
After meeting back in 2020 and despite being "a little shocked" at their height difference at first, Jesika fell head over heels in days.
Since she's so much taller she's the "big spoon" in bed and happily jokes about having to "move the car seat back" after Hunter, who is a personal trainer, drives the car.
Although the couple enjoy a happy relationship they revealed that they often receive mean comments with people constantly commenting on their height difference, both online and offline.
"I’ve had friends and other people ask me why I’m with someone so much shorter than me," Jesika told NeedToKnow.online.

"We’ve gotten comments asking if he’s my son or 'if I need a real man'.

"We're happy and that's all that matters."
Hunter added: "The most common [comments] is just any jokes about my height.

"If you make jokes about someone’s weight, it’s terrible and of course it is.
"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.
"I’ve just always been more concerned about how the other person feels about it."
Not only that, but complete strangers often make comments about the pair's sex life.
Luckily, Jesika says height makes no difference in the bedroom and she is having the "best sex ever".
She said: "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.
"The first time meeting Hunter was a little bit of a shock but I knew he was much shorter and I obviously didn’t mind.
"It still took a second when I saw him in person for the first time but within two days and realising how much I truly liked being with him, it didn’t matter anymore."
"People expect Hunter to make his height his entire personality but he’s just another normal person.
"He just grew out, not up."
After tying the knot in February 2022 the duo are now loving married life, even sharing their journey on TikTok, where they have over 58,000 followers.
By sharing their relationship online they hope to remove the stigma often attached the mixed height realtionships.
Jesika said: "We found accidentally on TikTok that people love seeing other couples with our type of height difference.
"So many other men or women said they’re in a similar situation and were so happy to see our posts."
Loads of social media users praised the couple for being so upfront about the relationship.
One TikTok user said: "Short kings forever."
Another person added: "Height does make a difference in all the right areas luv u guys."
"You’re tall where it counts…," added a third social media user.
