    It depends upon the two people involved, recently a 47 year old man, "tried" to convince me that he was interested in me, and that age shouldn't be a factor. Well, my youngest child is 51, my grandchildren are in their early, middle and late 30's. I was not able to consent to this age difference, I am 74. I am told that I don't look my age, but I know the real deal. So I guess it depends on what people are looking for, and their take on age. If I came home with a 47 year old dude, I think my kids would want to send me to the funny farm.

    The important word in this questions is ADULTS. If they are adults, there should be no issue at all.

    Especially if the "advice" comes from someone who's own relationship (most likely within their own age limit) failed.

    if the two don't have an issue, then why should it be an issue?

    I think it doesn't matter as long as both of the people in the relationship are emotionally capable.

    My best relationship ever, he was 12 years older than me. Met him at 14, started dating at 16 and living together at 17. Only guy able to make me re-think my ideas about monogamy, marriage, etc., but in the end, life got us apart

    I know a couple where he is early 50 and she is late 80's who have been happily married over 18 years.

    That's quite a difference, I am at the age where I've had enough issues of life, I do not know the future, but one thing is for sure, as you began to age, no matter how good you look, your body is constantly telling you that the old grey mare ain't what she use to be. So it becomes mnd blowing when you'e older, look good, but of a different ethnic background and being flattered by a young caucasian male, it's a lot to take in, and deserves serious decision making.

    Actually these are not kids in age, we are a close knit family, it would be kind of hard for them not to know, not to mention that the rest of my family would think that I have wigged out!

    It depends on the people. Legally it is not an issue, but emotionally it very well could be.
