Generally, I feel like 10-20 years junior or senior is considered “appropriate” by our society’s standards.
If Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher can get together (they started dating when she was 41 and he was 25) and movies like are nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, surely the taboo of having an age difference has gone out the window.
I find it refreshing that society has begun to validate the simple fact that relationships (no matter how short or long) can still be meaningful.
As our culture continues to redefine itself, the narrative of “you only get one love” is being rewritten.
My partner shared a lot of personal insight with me, which he gained through experiences before we met.
