Stop Using Celebrities To Talk About Age Gap Relationships

There’s a vast energy disparity between your 32 year-old and 25 year-old selves. If only you could slip the time-gods a $50 bill and roll back the years. People try to regain their youthly spirit by enrolling in a gym membership or practicing yoga, however, the most appealing route towards the fountain of youth might just be dating a younger woman. A lot of attacks on black women are overlooked because it’s seen that our lives are less important. There’s another reason I rarely show my partner on social media. But around young people my own age there was a different set of challenges.

Thompson’s theories about why middle-aged men date 20-something women definitely resonated with TikTok users, especially women.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were married on September 24, 2005. This looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Just ask the fabulous women in these famous May-December romances.

She then went to Australia for 10 years and is now based in California, USA. Working on her confidence after a gap of many years, Teejay is as keen as mustard to ride as many motorcycles, as much as possible. She enjoys honing her skills around curves and country roads, and more recently dual-sport as well. She is now a proud graduate of Yamaha Champions Riding School .

Their wedding took place in December 2018 in India and included both a traditional Mehendi ceremony and a Christian ceremony. However, the couple called it quits in 2013 after 8 years together. Since then, Kutcher married former co-star Mila Kunis and the couple have two children. Moore recently released a memoir, Inside Out, where she describes her marriage to Kutcher as a do-over, an opportunity to have the fun she missed when she was in her 20s. Gwen Stefani is 51 years old, but in reality, she look at least a decade younger.

Nowadays you prefer to spend your vacation time with family at the Cape rather than partying it up at Coachella. Misogynoir is misogyny aimed specifically at black women where race and gender both play roles in bias. It’s come more into our lexicon, especially online, recently when a study found that politician Diane Abbott alone received almost half of all the abusive tweets sent to female MPs in the run-up to our last general election. The language used was a marriage of sexism and racism, and it was even perpetuated by many people of colour, who saw her as an easy target. Serena Williams is also the recipient of this kind of abuse. As a black woman who has chosen to speak up about issues affecting black British women, I know I signed up for that.

Perhaps observers respond negatively to May-December relationships because they feel as though the older person is taking advantage of the younger person. Yet despite these factors nudging us towards partners of the same age, socio-economic circumstances can sometimes counteract evolutionary urges. TODAY special anchor Maria Shriver sat down with three couples who have varying age gaps.

The 52-year-old actress and the 37-year-old actor were engaged on-and-off for three years before calling it quits for good in 2015. In late 2017, Robin reportedly married French fashion executive Clement Giraudet — who’s also younger than her — after a whirlwind romance. Lisa Bonet is 12 years older than her hubby, Jason Momoa. The 50-year-old actress and the 38-year-old actor married in 2017 after 12 years and two children together. Jason opened up about marrying his celebrity crush on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.” “Ever since I was like, 8 years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one… I’m a full-fledged stalker,” he joked.

It’s actually natural for men to date younger women. Women seek men that are confident, mature, have resources, and a lofty social status. All these traits more often characterize older males than younger ones.

Only six weeks after that did the two announce they had secretly gotten married on Carey’s private island. In 2011, Carey gave birth to twins, Monroe and Morrocan, on her and Nick’s second wedding anniversary. The two have always been very private about their lives, but every time they make a public appearance, they seem to be as happy as ever. The age difference never bothered them or their families. As far as Aaron is concerned, they’re soulmates and that’s all that matters. Britney Spears often flaunts her young boyfriend on her social media.

Consider Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, who is 10 years his senior, Hugh Jackman’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness who is 13 years older than him, or Madonna’s current boyfriend who is 35 years younger than her. These days, even as most societies embrace increasingly progressive views on love, relationships and the rich variety of ways they can present, couples where one person is much older than the other still face judgement. Rather than assume people are happily together, there’s a tendency to worry about possible power imbalances, and view the relationship as transactional, assuming one party is seeking to elevate their social status or wealth. There’s even specific vocabulary to aid that judgement; an older man must be a ‘sugar daddy’, a younger woman a ‘gold-digger’ or victim of ‘daddy issues’. Each week, a fresh romance makes headlines involving a man in his late 30s or 40s and a woman in her early 20s.

Oscar winner Viola Davis, 55, married actor Julius Tennon, 66, in June 2002, with whom she has an adopted daughter. Florence Pugh, who starred in Little Women and received an Oscar nomination in the process for Best Supporting Actress, is dating former Scrubs star, Zach Braff. In the beginning, when we’d talk on Facebook, I felt like he understood what I was going through. I was going to move 20 hours away from my family to be with him, wore his class ring on a necklace, and had a wedding Pinterest board with his mom. Shannan, for example, who is divorced and lives in Atlanta, has three children between the ages of 21 and 30. She said she had zero qualms about mingling with men from that age bracket.
