I don't see the big deal. They're both adults, why should age have anything to do with whether they should be able to date or not? Maturity can play a big role when there's that much of an age gap, but that is more dependent on the individual and can vary with each couple.
Limiting who a person can love because of age seems really stupid to me.
I dont see why people think that other people should adhere to their opinion on whats acceptable or not.
Im not into older women but that doesnt mean I can, or would try, to condemn someone else who was.
So yeah, in case you havent guessed already I think its fine to date whatever ages you want.
I don't see anything really wrong with it so long as both parties want the same things and there is no coercion involved.
My "not my girlfriend" girlfriend has expressed a little discomfort with our very slight age gap (24 and 30) but I think she's realising how little it matters. She's just always dated older men and women before so being the 'old' one is new for her.
The only time it bothers me is when an older friend or lover says "when I was your age". No matter what follows it sounds patronising.
Well age is just a number and that's not really much of an age difference
There have been some drastic age differences in relationships but that's for another topic
What I see from this though is that she should take into consideration of the older woman's life as in her children and lover
It would be a family wrecker if an affair happened
My mom and biological dad were 21 years apart. When I was born she was 25 and he was 46.
The reason she went for an older man is because she thought he would be more mature than the boys she was with in the years before. Unfortunately, this was not this case and he did not own up to impregnating her, so there you have it.
If people love each other I don't see why sex or age should keep them apart.
However, with this case the older woman is married and most likely does not share the same feelings as the younger one.
