George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.But, it's not all good things, as there's also talk about their “bizarre” age gap: him 53, her 36.When it comes to the subject of love we always hope that there are no real significant barriers to its success.In our hearts, if not in our heads, we’re convinced that love will always trump practical concerns such as money, social class, race and even gender. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men?My problem is that I have always thought older women who go for younger men are a) disgusting b) need their heads examining and c)wonder what on earth the younger men would be doing showing interest in older women when they could be going out with a nubile 25 year old?Im just interested in getting everyone's opinions on here - can it work between older woman and younger man?The age gaps spanned anywhere from 10 to 14 years, with women in their late 40s and early 50s enjoying relationships and/or marriage with men in their late 20s or 30s. Couples in this situation had to address the fertility concern head-on, with some choosing to take the leap relatively quickly while others took a pass.And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.
