Woman marries mum's best friend in same-sex wedding, mum dates friend's ex-husband

A 26-year-old woman fell in love with her mum Simone's best friend Elaine Phillips, who was married to a man at the time.

Amazingly Elaine's husband Gary Butterworth and Simone gave Elizabeth Manning and Elaine their blessing. Then Gary and Simone found love with each other.

Elizabeth told the Sunday People neither she nor Elaine thought they would be attracted to a woman.

"But when we found each other the chemistry was electric. Elaine has shown me what love is and we're so blessed everyone in our lives has supported us."

She said Gary and Elaine, who had been together ten years, still loved each other as friends. "We didn't find it strange when he and mum got together – we were thrilled they were both so happy. It felt like it had meant to happen.

"Our family might be unconventional but we're so supportive of each other and we have so much love to share.

"We're now trying for a baby and I know my mum will be the best gran ever."

Simone, 43, cried tears of pride when she was a witness at Elizabeth and 38-year-old Elaine's wedding last summer but there was no happy ending for Simone, Gary, Elizabeth and Elaine.

In February, after a couple of days in hospital, Gary, 47, died of a massive stroke, leaving the women bereft.

Devastated Simone is now being supported by Elaine and Elizabeth, who live nearby.

Elaine said: "Elizabeth and I were with Simone when Gary died and we all just broke down. We couldn't believe it."

Mum-of-six Simone said: "My whole world has collapsed. I couldn't breathe. I felt like I'd been hit by a sledgehammer.

"I've just got to keep going. It's what Gary would have wanted. We only had a short time together but he was the love of my life.

"If Elaine and Elizabeth hadn't got together, nothing would have ever happened between us."

Three years ago Simone insisted troubled Elizabeth, who had suffered mental health problems, move back home to Langley Mill, Derbys.

Elizabeth and Elaine had only had romantic relationships with men but the attraction was instant.

Elizabeth said: "It was like nothing I'd ever felt before. I tried to persuade myself it was just friendship but it was more than that."

She daydreamed about Elaine but felt guilty as Gary was such a nice man. The pair fought their feelings for weeks but, in the end they gave in.

Three months after meeting they ended up cuddling on the sofa at the home Elaine shared with Gary while he was in another room.

Elizabeth said: "We ended up kissing. It felt so right and for a few moments, I was on cloud nine."

They realised they would have to tell Simone and Gary.

Elizabeth was so nervous about admitting she was gay and in love with Simone's best friend that she texted her. Simone replied she was proud of her no matter what.

Elizabeth said: "Having sex with another woman just felt so right and I realised I could never be truly satisfied by a man."

Elaine told Gary thinking he would be angry. She said: "He was shocked at first but told me he thought the spark was no longer there either. He encouraged me to follow my heart.

"When I spoke to Simone, she told me she'd give us her blessing if we made each other happy."

Simone was so supportive she invited Elizabeth and Elaine to live with her while they searched for a flat. Gary visited regularly and there was a spark between him and Simone.

Simone said: "It's strange Elaine is now my daughter-in-law as she's only five years younger than me but it's strengthened our friendship."
