And magazine insiders may know that Laura Brown, the editor in chief of In Style magazine, dates Brandon Borror-Chappell, a writer and comedian who is 16 years younger.
All of these couples have dealt with a hefty share of scrutiny. Taylor-Johnson told Vulture earlier this year that the attention on his marriage has been “intrusive.” Ms. Gallop, who is 57, said that younger men are able to match her energy levels better than men her age.
Fisher added that the prevalence of May-December romances involving younger men is part of a general shift in Western culture toward double-income families.
With women gaining more economic power, she added, younger men will seek out partners who either make as much money as they do or more, and have similar or higher levels of education.
But taking it to the altar level, that’s a whole new season worth of complications. I take all of the characters on a deeper journey of dealing with their darker truths, the things that weren't discussed in season one, the things people leave out during the honeymoon phase of their relationship.
Anne Marie and Gustavo give a little sneak peek of season two and explain why older woman/younger man relationships are so misunderstood. In season two, all masks are off, and when they aren't, they get removed by somebody else.
“People will have natural questions about it,” she said.
Wendi Deng Murdoch, 48, who was married to Rupert Murdoch, 86, for over a decade recently became Instagram official with Bertold Zahoran, 23, a model.
The lead-up to the French presidential election has been rife with debates over immigration, terrorism and the European Union, but one nonpolitical factor has fascinated the public in France and abroad: the 24-year age gap between Emmanuel Macron, 39, the candidate who will face off against Marine Le Pen on Sunday, and his wife Brigitte, 64. Macron when he was 15 and she was his teacher, married with three children, at a high school in Amiens, France. Macron asked her to help him rewrite sections of a play. Macron moved to Paris to continue his schooling, he declared, at age 17, that he would one day marry his teacher. The specifics of their love have generated headlines, commentary and opinion pieces around the world.
Granted, the back story to their coupledom is unusual, maybe even by the standards of the French, whose current and past leaders have been embroiled in very public romantic dramas. A Forbes article asked: “Who Is the Older Woman That Could Become France’s First Lady? Macron is gay and in a relationship with the chief executive of Radio France, Mathieu Gallet. Macron dismissed the rumor in February with a joke. Cindy Gallop, a provocative web entrepreneur who has been vocal about her decision to date younger men, points to sexism.
Gustavo: In terms of my character, it’s a deeper journey. He has to take a hard look at himself and make the difficult decision to be honest in his relationship -- if he wants it to lasts.
He gets challenged about his past, and so does Michelle. Two people meet and they have their pasts they have to overcome, in order to move forward.
In my experience, neither person is necessarily the wiser.
