Why nobody play one? Seriously, it will have you screaming obscenities… at least, that’s what the one person who played it reported so far. 😛 Another said you need a good mouse and strong heart! And another found it too stimulating and has ceased to be sulz’s friend for that. And yet another spewed curses, but at self. Muahaha! Someone claimed to have a heart condition after this. Seriously, is it that bad? Can’t tell ‘cos computer speakers are spoiled… hehe!
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are 25 years apart exactly (they share the same birthday). They seem to be raising a happy family at the moment, with two kids in tow. Michelle Branch is married to someone 18 years older than she is. Demi Moore, in her early forties, seems to be having it good with Ashton Kutcher, who’s in his late twenties (or has he hit thirty already?).
However, society still doesn’t quite approve of couples with too large an age gap between them. Case in point: the recent news about an 82-year-old woman marrying a 24-year-old man. (She died of a stroke one month later, willing all her property to him.) Another case in point: Mary Kay Letourneau who had sex with her future husband when he was 13, before marrying him when he turned 21 (after having been sentenced to prison for 7 years for statutory rape). They now have two kids. What about this one: a 34-year-old woman married her 21-year-old foster son and had a kid together?
Okay, so those are extreme examples to choose, but you get the point. 😉 There is a good reason for it, certainly? After all, a man in his forties would be mentally at a level that’s totally different than a woman in her, say, twenties? At the same time, we have couples (as mentioned above) who seem to be exceptions to this social norm.
Would you date a younger man if you’re a woman? Would you date an older woman if you’re a man?
Do you think there should be an age limit on someone you could be romantically involved with? After all, who’s to say what form love could come in? Should you set limits to yourself to look for a socially accepted romance? Or should you set limits for practical reasons so as to avoid potentially disastrous matches (read: golddiggers, mid-life crisis flings, etc)?
What’s your limit?
