When people discover someone to spend the rest of their lives with, it is usually someone their own age. This is because they are at a similar time in life, have comparable interests, and frequently mix in the same social circles, giving them the opportunity to meet. However, not all couples are the same age, and for some people, a significant age difference works well. This is true for celebrities as well as for couples who do not live in the spotlight. The only difference is that the media will frequently create a tale around a celebrity couple with a large age gap.
