Love is such a wonderful thing. If you find True Love and handle to hold on to it, then count yourself not just lucky, but truly gifted. Some people have choices in the person they would like to be in a relationship with. Maybe some one tall or somebody who is excellent looking or someone who is just a few years older or close to their age. This Hub focuses on the Age aspect – Couples who have a wide age gap between them, but are very much in love and still wedded. Age should not be a barrier to love.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Ashton Kutcher: Age 32 (Feb 1978)
Demi Moore: Age 47 (Nov 1962)
Age difference: 15 yrs
The couple wedded in 2005. Ashton is an American Actor and Demi an American Actress. They met in a celebration in 2003, but Ashton didn’t show any attention. However, two weeks later, they were at another party and things took off from there. They have no kids jointly, but I have my fingers crossed for them. It would be nice to see a “little Ashton” as Demi has 3 daughters with Bruce Willis.
Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel
Nelson Mandela: Age 91 (Jul 1918)
Graca Machel: Age 64 (Oct 1945)
Age Difference: 27 Years
The couple married in 1998. Nelson Mandela, previous president of South Africa and Graca a Lawyer and International Campaigner for children’s rights. The happy couple met in 1990, shortly after Mandela was released from prison. Mandela insisted that she be treated as the first lady of South Africa during foreign state visits. They have no children together. I’m so glad for Uncle N, that he has someone who truly loves him by his side at this time of his life; especially after all he’s been through.
Megan mullally and Nick Offerman
Age Gap: 12 years
Forty-two-year-old Megan Mullally met Nick Offerman, 30, in 2000, when he was an unknown actor, and she already had an Emmy for playing Karen Walker on “Will & Grace.” 12 years, two dogs, and one rock-solid wedding later, he’s caught up to her career, playing Ron Swanson, the meat-loving libertarian, on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”
As for the age difference, it doesn’t bother them. In fact, Mullally says, “Nick has said he would divorce me if I got Botox.”
Charlie Chaplin & Oona O’Neill
Age Gap: 36 years
“He has made me mature, and I keep him young,” said Oona O’Neill of her husband, silent movie legend Charlie Chaplin.
The daughter of playwright Eugene O’Neill, Oona dated Orson Welles and JD Salinger before settling down with the Little Tramp, whom she married in 1943, when she was 18 and he was 54. Though she was his fourth wife – and third teenage wife – they remained together for 34 years and eight children, until his death in 1977.
Annette Bening & Warren Beatty
Age Gap: 21 years
With names like Natalie Wood, Joan Collins, and Madonna, among his conquests, no one thought legendary ladies’ man Warren Beatty would ever settle down. Then, along came Annette Bening. The pair met while working on “Bugsy” in 1991, when he was 54 and she was 33. “It was something that we both took very seriously very quickly,” says Bening.
Twenty years later, they have four children together, including 21-year-old Stephen (formerly Kathlyn), a vocal advocate for transgender rights.
