Writer's Block: Love is timeless

What is your opinion of relationships where there is a significant age difference between partners?


Hmm. Let me think of some of my ships.

Jayne/River
Han Solo/Leia Organa
Wolverine/Rogue
Snape/Hermione
Charlie Weasley/Gabrielle Delacour
DG/Cain

Well. It does seem to be that I'm all in favor of it, doesn't it? literarylemming and i share many of these ships, and we tend to refer to them as our "Lolita ships."

In real life, though, I tend to...well..not frown on them, as I really don't care, but significant age differences with one partner being VERY young (like, 18 or 19) very much raise my eyebrows and wonder about it. In fandom, obviously, with fiction i KNOW why they're together and don't need to wonder or speculate.

I ship most of those ships too... And I have no problem with it in fic or in real life... But only in real life as long as the maturity level is there. I think at about 25 (depending on the person of course) you're more than old enough to decide for yourself who you want to be in a relationship with.
