A woman who married and had children with her stepbrother has responded to the backlash they've received on social media.

Lindsay and her spouse Cade Brown have gained lots of attention on their TikTok page - which goes by the handle @girl_meets_bro - for their unusual love story which began when they were just 14.

According to The Sun, the pair met in school, with Lindsay sharing that she used to sneak her future spouse into her house late at night until her mom got wind and banned them from seeing each other.

At the time, Lindsay and Cade’s parents were not yet married, with Lindsay explaining: "They were just acquaintances really," and adding: "Everything kind of started to come to a head around that time."

Watch their TikTok below: 

Unsure of her path in life, the TikToker joined the Air Force and moved to Texas leaving Cade behind. However, their romance blossomed again years later and they reconnected over social media and quickly recoupled.

Lindsay claims the distance made their love stronger as the two eventually wed in 2014 - only for her mom and Cade's father to also tie the knot a few years later.

In a video shared on the platform, the content creator stated: "No, our parents did not get married first. We did," and expressed that the confusing family tree doesn't bother anyone as "their families have blended really well" and that they are "all happy".

Despite explaining the chaotic order of marital events, the couple has been regularly targeted by trolls who leave comments like: "All I can think but no disrespect [is] SWEET HOME ALABAMA."

Another confused user even asked: "So your kids will be your nephew and nieces in-laws and your kids?", while a third quipped: "Arkansas? Alabama? West Virginia??"

One user even said their marriage was "an absolute train wreck waiting to happen," and added: "And I'm absolutely here for it."

Clearly unfazed, the parents (and step-siblings) hit back by sharing a video of them looking at the comment with disgust as SZA's song 'Blind' plays in the background.

Meanwhile, other people on the video-sharing page have been more accepting of the couple's love life, saying: "As long as y’all were together before they were it’s not as bad as it sounds."

Someone else even revealed a similar experience, penning: "We are in the same situation! We married then our parents married 3 years later," to which Lindsay replied: "It happens more than people would think! Glad I’m not alone!!!"

The TikToker may be correct as a commenter wrote that they and their partner "have known each other our whole lives" and that their parents "started dating, then we did".

"We got married then 4 years later our parents got married," they continued. "We have been married going in 14 years, 2 kids and 7 exchange student babies."
