    Default Age gaps (when the girl is older)

    Just wondering what you guys think about age gaps when the girl is older...say if the guy is 19 and the girl 26, is that weird, or ok?

    Meh, if they are both consenting adults then that's all that really matters, no?

    This ^^^.

    I am 30 and my boyfriend is 27. We make it work, even over long distance and court battles.

    If its meant to be it will.

    Age is just a number.

    26 to 19 is a pretty big gap though...spec with the female being older! 7 years is a lot and as "most" females mature faster then guys...I would think that there would be some really different priorities!

    Wouldn't matter for a fling.

    I know sometimes it does end up working out though...but those cases are really rare.

    Depends what you want from it.

    At that age I think it's a big gap, and likely has some serious challenges for a serious relationship. Later in life, not such a big deal. 30 and 37 for example would probably not 'feel' like such a big difference.

    Depends on the people really.

    I think about Hugh Jackman and his wife, they even have a bigger gap.
