Love – Who cares about Age Difference?

Updated on June 20, 2018

Love ♥ is such a beautiful thing. If you find True Love and manage to hold on to it, then count yourself not just lucky, but truly blessed. Some people have preferences in the person they would like to be in a relationship with. Maybe some one tall, or someone who is good looking or someone who is just a few years older (close to their age). This Hub concentrates on the Age aspect – Couples who have a wide age gap between them, but are/were very much in love. Age should not be a barrier to love.

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones


Michael Douglas: Birthday Sept 1944

Catherine Zeta-Jones: Birthday Sept 1969

Age Difference: 25 Years

The couple married in 2000. Michael is an American Actor and Catherine is a Welsh Actress. When they met, Michael used the line “I want to father you children”. I'm sure Michael must have had better "romantic" lines under his sleeves, but that one worked for Catherine. They have 2 kids together. Wishing them continued happiness in their marriage.

** Sadly, this couple have now separated.

Rene Angelil and Celine Dion


Rene Angelil: Birthday Jan 1942.

Celine Dion: Birthday Mar 1968.

Age Difference: 26 Years

The couple married in 1994. Rene is Celine’s Manager and Celine a Canadian singer. She recorded “it was only a dream” with the help of her mum and brother and the song was sent to him. He called the family to set up a meeting with Celine. They met – she was only 12, he was 38 and as we all know, he became her Manager and made her a big star. Obviously he played an important part in her career and must have been like a caring father. Naturally, she would have grown to love him. They have one son together.

Sadly, a while after publishing this article, Rene has since passed away.


"You truly love someone when you can feel every joy, sadness and pain of the other as if they were your own".

Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel
Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel

Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel


Nelson Mandela: Birthday July 1918

Graca Machel: Birthday Oct 1945

Age Difference: 27 Years

The couple married in 1998. Nelson Mandela, former 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.

** Nelson Mandela has since passed away in December 2013, but I'm sure Graca has many special, treasured memories of their marriage. May God heal her heart.


Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

Ashton Kutcher: Birthday Feb 1978

Demi Moore: Birthday Nov 1962)

Age difference: 15 yrs

The couple married in 2005. Ashton is an American Actor and Demi an American Actress. They met in a party in 2003, but Ashton didn’t show any interest. However, two weeks later, they were at another party and things took off from there. They have no kids together, 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.

Update: Dec 2011 - Sadly, this couple have broken up after a lady confessed to sleeping with Ashton on the night of their anniversary. It was hard for Demi to swallow but at least they will always share some good memories.
