Have your friends ever mocked you for dating somebody a little older or younger? If so, tell them, "Hey, at least I'm not like Edna and Simon Martin."

Edna and Simon (click here to see a pic of the twosome) were married in England back in 2005. They're not so much a May-December romance as a January-December one: At 73 and 35, Edna is nearly 40 years older than Simon. This puts them much more in the range of "Harold and Maude" (left) than Michael and Catherine Zeta.

Sure, there are plenty of reasons to date a younger guy, but this couple's age difference makes Lisa Loeb's marriage to a guy 10 years younger look like nothing.

The couple met through their love of the organ. Simon is dyslexic and dyspraxic, which means he's a bit of a klutz. Despite these challenges, he's apparently a fabulous organ player. He had never had a girlfriend before he met and married Edna, who has three children, all older than Simon.

The burning question, of course, is: With a four-decade age gap, how are things in the bedroom?

Most Annoying Couples

    The Love Birds They think they invented love and they want to share it with anyone within eye-shot. Gross. Get a room. No one needs to see that.

    The Fight Club There's nothing that won't start an argument between them. They'd break up or get divorced if only they knew how to live without the pleasure of hating each other every day.

    The Newly Engaged No one has ever been as happy as they are! And don't worry, their wedding is SO not going to be like all those other weddings. It's going to be special...and the only one that either of them will ever have, for sure.

    The Tourist Couple Do not lock eyes with them. They will ask you where they are, where they're going, how to get there and why it has to be so complicated. Then they'll ask you to take their picture.

    The Twins Studies suggest that the longer couples are together, the more they begin to look alike. But when you start to look less like a woman and more like your husband's teenage son, it's time for an affair.

Apparently the answer is "hot, hot, hot." Edna tells England's Daily Mail that they share "the same passion as a pair of 25-year-olds. We kiss about 150 times a day."

According to the article, she told the reporter this after licking Simon's nose. Ew. That's not the only kinky thing going on: Apparently Simon admits to being a cross-dresser. Edna told a British paper, "If he wants to dress up in a green caterpillar suit with pink flip-flops what does it matter? I don't give a monkey's." (We assume she would have added "bum," but she probably had to let the reporter borrow her bathroom for a long, cold shower.)
