"Everybody is always interested in the fact that I am married to someone who is a lot younger than I am…" Juliet reflected. "There are no rules, and that's what I believe because age doesn't really matter. If you meet someone that you're really close to, someone that you love, stick with that."

Asked if it was love at first sight for them, in 2019, Juliet told Mail Online: "I suppose so. We were instant friends, immediately attracted. I believe in reincarnation and I believe I'd known Maxwell in another life. It was like saying, 'Oh hello, there you are.'" 

"It was a full-blown romance," added Maxwell. "There was a connection on a psychic level. It was instantaneous for us both."

Their wedding was the "most romantic ever," according to Juliet, and Maxwell had organized the whole thing: "He planned our wedding too. It was the most romantic ever – at sunrise on a clifftop overlooking the Pacific."
