Philip Clements fell in love with Florin Marin after meeting him on a gay dating app. The pair got married in April last year and the ex reverend sold his Kent home to move to a £100,000 flat in Bucharest.
But a rift grew between the pair over Florin, an aspiring model, clubbing until the early hours.
After just a matter of months Mr Clements moved back to the UK.
Now, the pair have told The Sun they are giving things another go despite living thousands of miles apart.
The 80-year-old Brit said: ‘When I was separated from him, and in times past, I virtually had a depressive breakdown because I missed him. ‘It was like losing an arm or a leg. I knew for certain that I needed him. ‘You can’t explain these things scientifically.’18+ See Photos
