A woman who married a man with half of his face missing due to an extremely rare condition which left him without a jaw, has now revealed internet trolls often accuse her of faking her feelings for her husband to get attention from others. 

Joseph, 41, and Vania, 39, Williams, from Chicago tied the knot in 2020, and while the two are madly in love, their relationship hasn’t been smooth sailing as they often face backlash from strangers who have much to say about Joseph’s condition. 

Joseph was born with an extremely rare condition called otofacial syndrome which left him without a jaw or chin. 

After having faced bullies and hate throughout the entirety of his life, Joseph found dating difficult because he struggled with ‘low self-esteem and felt worthless’.

However Joseph soon found love with Vania in 2019 and began to believe in himself. 

Despite their visible love for one another, the two often receive hate from strangers who allege Vania is faking her feelings for Joseph to get attention and sympathy. 

Vania, who has ‘never dated anyone with a disability’ before meeting Joseph, didn’t  understand how their relationship could work when she first met him. 

When people would question their relationship the 39-year-old would often lie and tell others the two were ‘just friends’ because she was ’embarrassed’ and ‘ashamed’

‘Getting to know Joe over time, I didn’t see his face anymore, I just saw his spirit, his personality,’ said Vania. 

One year after meeting, the two who communicate through their phones and sign language, say their relationship revolves around love and nothing else. 

Joseph has described the hate they receive as ‘nerve wracking,’ noting that people often say Vania ‘can’t kiss him,’ or is ‘cheating on him.’ 

Others question how the two can have sex and even go as far as saying they are ‘faking [their] marriage for attention.’ 

‘When we go out together, it’s basically just stares, people pull out their phone sometimes recording or taking pictures, but they never say anything, just staring,’ added Vania. 

However, Joseph sees the hate ‘as clear as day’ and wishes that people would ‘just ask him what happened’ instead of acting ‘ignorant.’ 

The couple’s family have been supportive from the start but Vania’s mom had concerns because she thought her daughter would have to provide Joseph with 24/7 care.
