I'm curious to see what others think: if you had friends in this type of relationship, would you think "She's a BABY! My parents had an 18 year age difference (she was 16 and he was 34 when they married [and he was her high-school teacher]- this was rural Alabama in the early 1950s when that wasn't so scandalous) and the marriage lasted for 30 years. (It wasn't a happy union, it's just that its unhappiness got tenure.) How much of my parents' unhappiness was based in the age difference I don't know, but I can't shake the feeling that when a guy goes after a gal half-his-age, however else he may justify it the lust for firm young flesh is high on the list of REAL motivations (not to say that he can't be intellectually attracted as well). Maybe you would do well to adopt my motto: I don't care WHAT you do, as long as you don't do it to me. at a small Liberal Arts College in New England, I'll say this. On the other hand, this does seem a bit icky to me. Before I started dating men twenty years older than me, I dated men the same age as myself, and one much younger." or would you think "one can't control where the heart will lead"? My husband's second wife was 17 years younger than him. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Or what I tell my kids- you worry about YOURself, and let others worry about THEMselves. Wht he is doing is very taboo among the upper echelon of college profs. It is not advisable to date students at your institution, and though I have personal objections to the age difference, in this situation it is more of a professional indecency. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Makes me wonder if this girl knows what she is doing, but hey! ;) In conclusion, this is none of our business, so let's just give a little shudder and forget about it. And if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere, you know, take it to the shit store and sell it, or put it in a shit museum, I don’t care what you do, you just gotta get it together.Other peoples opinions can't really slow the progress unless you let them because you are both of legal age and consent to make your own decisions I was married at 19, been married 12 years now.She let it slip to me (I'm 28 FWIW) when she had had one too many beers at a party exacting a promise that I wasn't to tell our mother.Well I told my older sister and she told my mother so technically I didn't tell but my mother doesn't know what to do.
Kelly has never been found guiltily of any wrong doing. Kelly (pictured at court in 2007) has also been accused a number of times of engaging in sexual relationships with underage girls.
The aspiring model posted a number of shots from backstage at the singer's concert.
Backstage: Blog Gossip This was the first to report that the pair were dating and claims R.
Most large age gap couples I know are no more prone to such power issues than anyone else - it seems everyone only thinks of the "innocent 18 year old girl and the drug-using 30 year old man who served time for rape".
Oh, and those belonging to some conservative religions as that power play can be part and parcel of the belief system.
