The former German Chancellor 78 year old Helmut Kohl is to marry his 43 year old girlfriend Maike Richter. I’d be curious to know if you think relationships with big age gaps can work? Are you in one and if you are what’s your experience? Is there a point when the gap becomes too much?
They will join a list of well-known individuals with large age gaps between themselves and their partners.
Michael Douglas is 25 years older than Catherine Zeta Jones; Sex & the City actress Kim Cattrall is 23 years older than partner Alan Wyse; film-maker Woody Allen is 35 years older than wife Soon-Yi Previn, Demi Moore is 15 years older than Ashton Kuthcher, there is a 13 year age gap between French President Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni..the list is endless..
Are they proof that with the right two people age doesn’t matter?
