The British woman who loves to marry, again and again!

Serial bride Pat Higgins has hooked 24-year-old store worker Mark Sanderson and the couple held an engagement party, 'The Sun' reported.Sanderson's friends say that he is besotted with her -- even though she's seven years older than his mother.

"It's his first proper girlfriend and he's fallen head over heels. But he's ended up with someone who eats younger men for breakfast," one of his friends was quoted by British tabloid as saying.The pair first met in November.

Higgins had been wed three times before Mark was born, marrying her first husband back in 1974. Her shortest marriage lasted five days. The longest was a marathon five years. All her hubbies have been younger than her.

She had told the British tabloid on an earlier occasion: "I'm hooked on marriage. But men my own age are boring and I'm certainly not ready for the shawl and hot milk just yet."
However, Sanderson's parents are unhappy about the proposed marriage.

A family friend said: "No one in his family is happy and it's no surprise. Like any mother, Jennifer was hoping her son would have a lovely big wedding, a happy family occasion.
"They knew she had a bit of a background but they had no idea she'd been married eight times before. His mum and stepdad pleaded and tried to make him see sense but it's hard to tell a lad of that age."
