    43 y.o. Film Director Having Baby with 19 y.o. Actor

    Oh my....
    http://www.people.com/people/article...364364,00.html

    And she has a 13 year old daughter from a previous relationship....I can't imagine being 13 and having a 19 year old stepdad.

    Ironically this pales in comparison to the other thread about the grandma having a baby with her grandson. I suppose it's all relative (no pun intended)

    I know of two such situations (19 year old and 40+ with daughter almost as old as the wife), but the genders were reversed. I also know of a family in which the step mother was younger that the father's children from his first marriage!

    Personally I can't imagine being in a romantic relationship with such an age gap, but I do think there's a double standard in terms of gender.

    You go girl! Although having 13-year-old stepdaughter...awkward.

    I'm in my late 30's and my husband just turned 50 a few years ago. He has a daughter who just turned 29. I have had to learn to let go of what other people might think about the age gaps in my family.

    She's right - it would barely be noteworthy if their genders were reversed. Mena Suvari (of American Beauty) married cinematographer Robert Brinkman when she was 20 and he was 38 - it made a brief ripple in the news but not much.

    My brother, who is 35, is married to a woman aged 63. Her daughter is about his age, if not older.

    I suspect that if the genders in this story were reversed, it wouldn't even be news.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    Probably not, but when he (or she) could have been the partner's child without recourse to teen pregnancy, ick. At least until the younger one is 35 or so.

    But, it is their life.

    I hope she can afford counseling for her daughter.

    There's definitely a double standard. The View was discussing this yesterday, Sheryl "The world isn't flat?" Sheppard didn't have a problem with the 19 boy marrying the 41 yo woman, but for the reverse situation she said the 19 years old girl is still discovering who she is, blah, blah, blah, so the girl shouldn't be involved with a 41 y.o man. Huh? Like any normal 19 y.o. boy already has his life path set at that age .

    I think the 40 y.o. woman should be mature enough to say to the boy, "you know what? As much as I want this right now, it isn't right for you. You need to explore people your own age."

    Sorry -- the ick (for me) is that one partner is plenty old enough to have fathered or given birth to the younger partner -- and the parent was well into their 20's. (That is, REALLY a lot older than the younger spouse.)

    At 43? I don't think so.
