As the old saying goes, in love, age is just a number.
In the past, large age gaps were considered somewhat taboo and were thus talked about typically in hushed tones. While a relationship between a middle-aged man and his younger bride was slightly more acceptable than that of an elderly woman and a virile young man, both may raise some eyebrows as these were considered indecent by the more conservative members of society.
However, nowadays, we have slowly come to accept May-December romances in our more modern and progressive society.
As a matter of fact, according to an article published recently in Psychology Today, younger women tend to prefer older men for their stability while older men favor younger women for their fertility. Hence, why the number of relationships with large age gaps has significantly increased over the years.
It goes without saying that a large age gap is not a hindrance to having a healthy relationship. What matters most is the willingness of both parties to work things out between them. A large age gap will not affect a relationship so long as you have established mutual trust, respect and communication.
Indeed, we have witnessed how several celebrity relationships have flourished despite having age differences.
