Default Age Limit for Love?

What does everyone think is the abolsute age difference limit for couples, before it gets creepy?


I think about 10 years is tops... After that, it's a little sad. In the beginning, I guess it would be good, but then, when you get to 50 and he/she's 70+ it's a little... Sad...

But then again, if you love each other, then it doesn't really matter does it?

And that would mean you'd be paring up a 14 year old with a 24 year old.
I beg to differ that that's the optimum age difference you can think off.

The problem is more varied. At the younger ages, the age difference would be best to look as small as possible to avoid the above situation, but when people grow older, they tend to accept wilder variations. So, 20ish years might be a big gap when you're 40, but once you go 90ish, it doesn't say much.

I've given this a lot of thought in my youth.
What i've come up with is that a 2 year bracket is usually decent while you're in high school or something, but like D-UMB said, as you get older that bracket gets wider. Being 25 now, i feel that about 22 - 26 suits my maturity level-- which is really what it always should come down to.

I think it should be within a 10 year limit. Now we all know it deosn't matter when they're both old cause they're both old. It all depends on how old the 2 are.

I'd say as long as both are in the same stage of life. You know, adolescence, teen, young adulthood, adult, middle-aged, senior. Just stay in your own field, which corresponds a lot with the maturity level factor mentioned by !ceman.

Wonderful example on how to post in a debaate forum, Treeky 111. I think that the age limit should be no more than 15 years. After that, you would have to wonder what is wrong with them.

It's not how old you need to be to love, it's the differanc ein age

Well, I mean, a lot of 12 years olds at my school date 16 year olds. My dad is 6 years older than my step mom

"Harold and Maude" proved to us all that love knows no age.

As !Ce said, as you get older the age bracket widens.

I do, however, don't approve of a gap any more than 15 years by the time you're an adult. Personally, I think around the five year range is sufficient enough.

I also hate how so many naive teenaged girls go for the much older guys. I mean, do you really want to be a sophomore when your boyfriend is heading to college? :l

I know a girl in my United States History class who claims to have dated a 23-year old. She's 14.

Ok, sorry, I'm not talking about pedophilic crap, like an under 18 with an over 20. That's just wrong. Until the younger is over the legal age, then... I guess it's fine... Legalities really change your opinion huh?

Yeah, I'm talking about if, you're 20 and you date a 30yr old, along those lines...

2 years is normally the age gap, or it seems to be the most popular, with the male being older, no offense, but apparently, males do develop a little slower than females. So the age gap would be good I guess...


But then again, there was a story in the paper once, about a 40 year old guy (or so) who fell in love with an 80-90 year old woman, he met her on a bus ^_^ I think it's kinda sweet, but it would be sad, watching your love die and you have another 40 years left...

Ben Carson's father was 28, marrying a 14 year old woman. Personally, I think there should be no age limit difference-stereotypical or legal. If you truly fall in love with someone then that's that. Of course, some people are going to see it as weird, or disgusting, but true love should mean that you don't dictate your relationship by the stigma others put on you.

Seeing as my parents are ten years apart in age (45{mom} and 55{dad}), I don't think there's much of a difference. I do think though, if you're going out with someone older, you should at least wait until you're 18. Kinda creepy seeing a 15 year old and a 34 year old dating. o_O

My cousin is 16 and she married a guy who's 34 and has 3 kids. Love is love no matter how you see it. Just accept the fact that love is unstoppable.
