    I don't see anything wrong with that age difference.

    Or maybe they really like each other and are actually dating.

    Some of the cynicism is a bit silly. Sure, the USFSA are going to love it and the NBC will go nuts. But y'know, maybe Max and Gracie are just two regular type people who happen to be dating? Gee whiz!

    I see nothing wrong with it as well, in fact I'm thrilled because I love the way they jump! :) Seriously though the typical dating age is 16, and as has been mentioned previously that's when Katia first started dating Sergei (they shared their first kiss together on New Year's Eve 1988). And in her book "My Sergei" she mentions they were friends first, then lovers, spouses, and finally parents. In fact I distinctly recall the part in her book wherein she mentions they first started sleeping together in Paris when she was 17; Worlds didn't even matter that year because she was so in love with Sergei. :smokin: Ahhh, young love in Paree!!

    Though I don't suggest sleeping together so young (especially unmarried), I see absolutely nothing wrong with dating. And on that note I wish Max & G.G. more good times together as each other's best friend.

    GOOD LUCK AT WORLDS MAX & GRACIE (kick some tail)!:kickass:

    This makes me so sad. :( But at least it was "until death do we part."

    I didn't know that Totmianina and Marinin were a couple. They skated as if they didn't want to touch each other.

    Did anyone mention Selezneva and Makarov? I think they've been married almost 30 years.

    They are a successful Soviet/Russian love story. Why can't skaters in Russia today stay together for longer than a quadrennium?

    I read an interview that said they had dated for a while around the time that they came to the US. They lived together in Totmianina's mom's house then moved to Chicago. Once Tatiana became involved with Oleg, I can see where working on their romantic connection might seem awkward. I don't know why they would choose R&J for the Olympics. Their Cotton Club, Peer Gynt, Shez, and Art On Ice programs were much better.

    Cotton Club is a low standard. If a program was worse than that, it's hard to comprehend how anyone let it win the Olympic title. Then again the silver medalists took a ten minute break in their program.

    What diva behavior :rolleyes:? I don't remember anything of the sort (at least if you mean "diva behavior" in a bad way, which you most likely do).

    Is this an example of the respectful behaviour to other skaters that you were preaching about in the TSL thread?

    Until she's 18, some might prosecute for certain behaviors. . . :shuffle:

    The only problem I have with 21 year-olds dating 17 year-olds is that I wonder what's wrong with the older person. They couldn't get someone their own age so they have to get an impressionable younger (most likely still in high school) teen to think everything he/she says and does is so mature and cool? But then they're figure skaters, so I think it's a different culture.

    I forgot to ask, are Trankov & Volosozhar a couple? They certainly act like it. Man! I can't imagine kissing someone on the lips and just being friends.

    No you don't. Why would you want something that gives you diarrhea of the mouth?

    I kiss many people on the lips who are just my friends. My mom used to kiss me on the lips as well.
