We are not traditional.
So said Crystal Harris to People when asked about her relationship with Hugh Hefner. The 24-year old wasn't even referring to the age difference between her and her 84-year old fiance, however.
She was simply recounting how Hefner proposed, placing her giant ring inside a Little Mermaid music box and not getting down on one knee.
Hefner, meanwhile, describes Crystal as "totally devoted," adding:
"Her priorities are pretty much our relationship, No. 1 and No. 2 and 3, and you don't always find that. Despite the age disparity, the truth of the matter is we have a great deal in common, we really complement one another, we have a wonderful time together, and I love her."What else can you ask of the couple, who met at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 and bonded over their shared psychology majors in college?
Harris has turned around Hefner's opinion on marriage, as the magazine founder admits he always thought "people start to take one another for granted" once they're hitched.
"I just simply found myself in a relationship with Crystal in which I felt, quite frankly, the opposite seemed to be true – that the more committed to one another we were, the closer we got, and the more we loved one another, and I just think this one, for me, will be the exception to the rule."
Isn't that sweet? Totally gross and nauseating, considering the pair's ages... but also sweet.
