RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — A Ridgewood High School literature teacher is featured in the New York Times for his "weird" Match.com love story.

Brian James Lee and Candice Marie Turner were both single parents of adopted children when they met on the dating website six years ago, the NYT article says.

Lee was living in Hasbrouck Heights with his adopted daughter, Christina, now 14, who started out as a foster child with the teacher and his then-girlfriend, The Times reports.

Turner adopted her son, Matthew, 17, after offering help to his overwhelmed birth mother when he was a baby.

Lee and Turner welcomed their first child together -- Joey Lee Turner -- in 2012, according to the New York Times. The family moved to a White Plains farmhouse and by 2015, welcomed two more baby boys.

Turner and Lee got married last month in New York City.
