I am aware there are possibilities where two people can successfully date with an age gap of more than eight years. (Seriously, she was born on the same day and same year.
If that's not an easy conversation opener, I truly don't know what is.)But after all sorts of successes and failures with women, as time has gone on, I've found at least common failure: a massive age gap.
What about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were 16 years apart when they were married?
Or, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are 25 years apart in age?
A study released in 2003 by the United Kingdom's Office for National Statistics concluded that the proportion of women in England and Wales marrying younger men rose from 15% to 26% between 19.
' The questions just seemed to keep on coming" says 34-year-old Amelia.
So, if something seems too good to be true (read: he or she is too hot for you by about eight years), it probably is.
Here are four problems you'll likely run into if you break the 8-year rule: I once went out with a woman who was under the impression that Lauryn Hill was made famous by being in “Sister Act 2.”Now, there are a few reactions you can have to this.
Age-disparity relationships have been documented for most of recorded history and have been regarded with a wide range of attitudes dependant on sociocultural norms and legal systems. Relationships with age disparity of all kinds have been observed with both men and women as the older or younger partner.
In various cultures, older men and younger women often seek one another for sexual or marital relationships.
