Are age-gap relationships doomed?
With a whole host of age-gap celebrity couples splitting, we're asking, does age matter when it comes to finding love?
Last week Hollywood couple and age-gap relationship pin-ups Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas announced that they are currently separated after 13 years of marriage. With this 25-year age-gap relationship failing to go the distance and a survey revealing that the number of women choosing to marry younger men has risen by 10% in the past three decades, we want to know if age-gap relationships can ever work.
We're joined by journalist Petronella Wyatt, 44, who says that her experience of dating men over twenty years older than her leaves her in no doubt that age-gap relationships are always doomed to fail, no matter how you feel initially. But actress Tina Malone, 50, who is currently married to a man 19 years her junior, claims she is living proof that age-gap relationships can go the distance.
