does age really matter?

July 12, 2007 10:36am CST
why is it such a big deal if two people who are in a relationship have a big age gap? does age relly matter? in what aspect? it is a crime to fall in love with someone way older or someone really young? are there specific norms when it comes to falling in love? who sets the standards?

If two people really do fall in love, it doesn't matter. I don't think big age gaps are usually right though. Often one person takes advantage of another. it matters less as you get older - say 30 & 50 would be OK, but when people are young I think they are preyed upon because they are often immature and vulnerable to manipulation.

don't you think it is the other way around? that people who are older are often preyed upon since they are on the "losing" end? that maybe the reason why young people would "prey" upon them is that they crave for the love and attention that people their age cannot give them?
