  • I dont think its wrong as long as the younger one is old enough. Male or female I think a 18 y/o with a 50 y/o is just wrong.

  • Um...maybe because our ancestors use to give their daughters away when they were 13 to men that were in their 40's. So I guess its something that has always been accepted but thank god not to that degree anymore. Thats my guess.

  • Technically, sociology wise, because it is a waste of sperm (and we have to populate the planet.) I think the idea has become completely outdated.   I don't know who you know that is busting on you or somebody else.  But really very few people care as long as the age gap super big.

  • If you are an older woman looking to date a younger man, my BIL owns a nice condo, has a good job, and likes pets. I'm cougar hunting for him.

  • I don't think that's the case anymore...with the whole cougar movement and all. Hot young men seem to be the new coach bag.
