(LifeWire) — Older girl seduces more youthful guy. Problem? It really is a scene through the 1967 coming-of-age classic “The Graduate.”
Actress Demi Moore is fifteen years avove the age of her spouse, star Ashton Kutcher.
But high-profile Hollywood partners like Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins (12 years her junior) — whom came across and started dating while shooting an on-screen relationship in the 1988 film “Bull Durham” — have actually proven that life can certainly imitate art in terms of issues for the heart.
Theirs, but, is a real-life love tale of a mature girl and more youthful guy — a thing that is not so unusual nowadays. A 2003 study by AARP revealed that 34 per cent of all of the females over 40 into the study had been dating more youthful guys, and 35 per cent preferred it to dating older males.
“Societal attitudes have actually surely changed,” claims Susan Winter, 52, co-author of “Older Women, Younger guys: New alternatives for adore and Romance” — and she’d know. At age 40, she ended up being dating a 19-year-old. “We needed to break it well. Truth be told, their mom managed to get therefore impossible,” Winter claims associated with relationship that is six-year which inspired her guide. “But (that sort of discrimination) wouldn’t be allowable now.”
