By ANDREW PARKER A GRAN aged 60 has dumped her hubby to wed a 22-year-old Moroccan she met on the internet. Sylvia Norton divorced husband of 38 years Eric after contacting hunky student Tarik Ouhtit in a chatroom. The mum of three â€” whose children are all older than Tarik â€” fell for him using a computer she bought Eric for his 60th birthday. But now she is furious after Tarik was refused a visa to come to Britain. He has been told he must prove it is not a marriage of convenience. British Gas worker Sylvia said at Dudley, West Midlands: â€œThis is not a marriage of convenience, itâ€™s a marriage of love. â€œTarikâ€™s my husband and I want to live with him in my country. â€œI know people might think he has other motives but Iâ€™m not daft. I know itâ€™s the real thing.â€? Tarik â€” who has a brother in London â€” had previously been refused a visa twice. He said from his village home near the Moroccan capital Rabat: â€œThey think itâ€™s a convenience marriage because of the age gap. But I love her.â€? Sylvia, who has children Andrew, 35, Elizabeth, 33, and Sarah, 29, plus three grandkids, first contacted Tarik in November 2000. He used the chatroom nickname Fortune Teller. She ran up a Â£2,000 phone bill and flew to see him five times, marrying him in Morocco in May. She said: â€œWhen I saw him he looked like an Adonis. I flung my arms round him like a lovesick teenager. â€œHeâ€™s had an amazing effect â€” I feel younger. I used to walk with a stick, now Iâ€™ve thrown it away.â€? She added: â€œI did ask if he wasnâ€™t looking for someone his age. But he said he wanted a real woman and that I was loving and caring. My children were frosty at first but theyâ€™ve accepted things.â€? Eric, now 61, is living with son Andrew. He said: â€œI was very hurt at first. But now Iâ€™m quite enjoying doing my own thing.â€?
