Does Age Matter in Love?
The President and the First Lady are a good example of whether age matters between two when in love? With decades in age difference between them, many will suspect other motives are at play when ANY couple has a huge gap in age. While there is nothing wrong with that, per se, was it ever really about love? Was it more about getting ahead in some way, filling a need, or other personal want?
Maybe the relationship between the First Lady and POTUS was real at first but changed over time to what it really is now - a more platonic love. According to reports, Melania actually sleeps on the third floor of the WH, and Donald sleeps on the second floor. Oddly enough, the third floor is where Michelle Obama's mother slept.
This is really not shocking, how could anyone really love POTUS? He is such a narcissistic person that needs continual praise and rants when he does not get it. For Donald, maybe all he wanted was a trophy wife and another child for his empire, while for her, she saw a chance to elevate her social position and inherit huge sums of money. She could play the role for awhile and bear a child because she also wanted one.
But other couples with a huge age difference marry for similar reasons, reasons other than that burning love that pulls couples to together. Old men often have much younger wives to fulfill personal needs. A more platonic love develops as time goes on because physical characteristics change with age that may not be appealing than before. Maybe the need for sex is no longer there but the bonds of caring and appreciation remain absent physical love and maybe that is enough.
There are plenty of motives why age differences may not matter. Some are selfish and some are not, but as long as the couple have the will to accept them, age should not really matter.
