Does Age Matter in a Relationship?


                A couple of months ago, Hugh Hefner, 85, and his ex-finance Crystal Harris, 25, announced that their engagement was off (People Magazine: Hugh and Crystal Harris split).  Most of America probably could have predicted this.  A 25 year old wanting to marry an 85 year old?  How does that happen? When I saw that article in a People magazine, I couldn’t help but wonder if their 60 year difference in age had anything to do with the split.  Some people think that age really does matter in a relationship, and others beg to differ.  I know many couples who are eight or ten years apart, but how far is too far? 

                Before researching this topic, I automatically thought ‘No, age doesn’t matter in a relationship at all’.  My opinion was just from my personal experience because my boyfriend is 25 and I am 19 (turning 20 soon).  About a year and a half ago when we started dating, my parents were very uneasy about the idea of their youngest daughter dating someone who is five and a half years older, but as time went on, they got over it, and now they absolutely love him.  But what if he was 10 or 15 years older than I am? Would we get stares walking down the street together because people disagree with our relationship because of our age?  Some people really don’t care about the age difference in a relationship, but others think that age absolutely matters in a relationship.,,20502778,00.html
