Age gap dating is not only a hot trend now but it has been a hot trend in just about every generation. Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd, Céline Dion and René Angélil, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva, are just a few of the celebrity couples who are famous for their May to December romance.
It used to be that men, primarily, would date younger women; but it is becoming ever so popular for cougars to date younger men. Some women, like the actress Demi Moore, started out dating older men and then switched to cougar status. She is a prime example in support of the fact that age gap dating can prove to be long-lasting and rewarding for both parties.
Demi was married for four years to Freddy Moore who is twelve years her senior. She later married Bruce Willis, who is eight years her senior, for thirteen years. Her third marriage was to Ashton Kutcher who is fifteen years her junior, and they remained together for six years.
Now the big question is; what’s the perfect age gap for an ideal relationship? The answer is simple; the ideal age for age gap dating is any age where both parties are mature and are emotionally compatible. Clearly, this will exclude many prospects on the basis of immaturity and/or lack of compatibility.
Maturity might come later in life for some men as well as some women, but when that love connection is made, regardless of the age gap; it can be a beautiful thing.
