Celebrity Couples with Big Age Gaps That Show Age is But a Number

By  | 

It shouldn't come as any surprise that relationships are hard. In fact, sustaining a long-term and healthy relationship just might be the hardest thing you'll ever do! Finding that person is part of the challenge and usually, you look for (and meet) people who are around your own age — especially when you're in high school and college.

But when school ends, you're thrown into a world of people much older than you and as time goes on — *gasp* — much younger. Remember when we were all in middle school and hopelessly devoted to 40-something stars like Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt? Our friends said it would never happen because the age difference is too big — but once you get older, those age differences feel less and less significant.

If you're still single right now, just keep in mind that your future partner could possibly still in junior high. Of course, you'll not be pulling a Riverdale‘s Ms. Grundy or Pretty Little Liars‘ Ezra Fitz… because not only is it gross but also illegal, but you'll just probably meet them long after they turned 18 and graduated from high school. Or if that's still just a tad too creepy for you, maybe they're a well-established Gen X-er waiting to run into you and sweep you off your feet. You never know who your future soulmate may be.

These celebrity couples have huge age differences, at least ten years, and are living proof that age ain't nothing but a number. They're in love, happy, and one of half of each of these couples was at the very least riding bikes around their neighborhood when their future partner was born.

Check out this list and be surprised by these age differences.
