    Is Gracie even 18 yet? I wouldn't want my 17 year old dating a 21 year old!

    Then again, how often do you think they actually see each other?

    Gracie will turn 18 on August 17th. As far as frequency is concerned, there's no better effective barrier to your concern than over 1,000 miles I guess they'll hang at Worlds and I'm sure that Gracie will be effectively chaperoned.

    Then again, how much of this is a publicity stunt?

    The drive and focus (shadenfreude?) of these skaters is amazing. Boyfriend becomes coach, then partner becomes boyfriend; but the 3 all still work and travel together. And succeed. And again, vice versa with Mozorov and Ilinikh. I'm sure there are others.

    I'm not sure what the problem is. The age difference between Max and Gracie is about what it was for G/G. I'm sure at about the same age they shared a kiss or two also.

    It isn't the age difference per se, but the stage of life they are in. If it was 19 and 23, it wouldn't be as odd to me.

    G/G got together at about the same age. As for whether they are a couple in the note Gracie says she's Max's girlfriend.

    The age difference is less concerning when you take into consideration these are elite athletes who have lived very sheltered lives. Partying too much, doing drugs, getting pregnant, and suffering drunken injuries are all potentially career-ending in there effects. Idk if I were the parent of an Olympic hopeful athlete I wouldn't be too concerned about them making bad choices.

    Maybe it's only pre-Olympic fluff in the making. You know, to give media a Story line.

    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. 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)!

    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?
