Do you think love should have a limit in age?

    Do you think love should have a limit in age?

    i know someone who is 46 and he is dating a 25 year old. People look down on their relationship but I support them because they are in love and about to get married soon. So he was 21 when she was born, is that bad?

    No, age should have no limit; unless they are of course under the age of 18. You cannot tell your heart who to fall in love with.

      in some states some people can get married under the age of 18 (with parent permission) do you think that's wrong? i know someone who is 15 and she is dating a 21 year old and they are happy.

      true, but not if they're not doing anything illegal, at least i hope their not. no way to prove it anyways, but they are together and happy.

    Love happens.....normally one does not think before falling in love. So, it can happen at any age, with a person who is older or younger. But, one must understand whether it is really love or just infatuation.
    For a relationship to last, both partners should discuss each one's point of view, so that there are no break ups later. That will be so sad. Both partners have to make adjustments and compromises for a relationship to last longer.

    I think it more about what they have in common than age. Usually, a 46-year-old would not have much in common with a 25-year-old. Life brings about lessons, experiences, and insights that you can't get without aging. But I think that some people can be at the same place in life regardless of their age...they may have experienced more quicker. Therefore, the 25-year-old and the 46-year-old may be a perfect match!

      They're planning to get married soon. So yeah, no one knows what life is planning for everyone.

    I think that is a bit much. My perspective is "if you could be their kid, the romantic relationship should not exist".

      hey, as long as they're happy and it's legit.

      It's pretty messed up if you could be their kid. It's like they married their own children.

      no it's not lol it's a different person. when you're in love you dont stop and think about that sort of thing. you only think about that person

      My mind won't change on this. I see it as incest.

    there is no age limit when comes to love. Same goes with education. It is never too old to love or to learn. If the woman is purely in love with the older man, why not go ahead and settle down. It is indeed rare but worth to applause to their relationship.

    If the two people in the relationship are consenting adults - as long as they are happy - who cares?

    If there is someone in the relationship who is not an adult, and/or would not be considered one in the case of informed consent (eg - if a person is under 16 without a parent with them in a medical setting - if it can be deemed that they understand the ramifications of their decision - they are entitled to make it for themselves) - then that is wrong.  In this I'm including children, and those who are vulnerable due to intellectual disability.

    Consenting adults - age is no barrier, nor is anyone getting hurt in the process.

    Love is the purest gift to man kind. It is void of external factors such as age, race, distance, height, background and many more of such. Provided they are two mutally consenting Adults, there is nothing wrong in it. In fact, even a 16 year old can date a 70 year old, provided what they share is genuine. A less age gap is not a yardstick for a permanent relationship and it is definitely not a guarantee that the lady of 25 will be happier if she dates a 30 year old dude.
