I was shellshocked when a friend told me that she is seeing someone more than 20 years senior.
I was tight-lipped when my opinion was saught as I really don't know whats the right answer. Yes? No? Maybe? I dont know.
But my rationale came as, as long as both individual have no issues with each other, and most importantly receives the blessing of both the parents. I dont see why not. Other "pat kong" and "pat poh" kepohchees can go poke their noses somewhere else. This is because relationship as such will definately be a hot issue for gossips.
I know examples like Catherine Zeta Jones er...who else? ummm....oh yah.. Siti Nurhaliza?!!
and then......ok i dunno already. But i do know some perfectly married couples that the wife are like 8 years older?? And they have pretty children too.
Personally I don't find age is an issue. My own age-gap difference is quite significant too (as compared to the norm) and we have no problem whatsoever. However 20 over years is really alot!! Imagine when you're in your thirties and looking great...and your significant other is like...60?? gosh....thats too much for me. I can't handle that. Its like dating your own father. :P
I donno ...what do you think?
