    Incidental mentions of AGR's in news items

    I've often noticed references to AG couples showing up incidently in news reports on unrelated subjects but never remembered to post them here until this one:
    this article about the Thames flooding (just four miles upriver from us!) features an OW/YM 21yr AG couple.

    Actually, it's an OM/YW.....according to the article, she's 60 and he's 81. Although, as a woman who is also 60, I'd hardly consider her a YW.

    Ooops - a typing error, probably as I'm more used to OW/YM posts.......

    Perhaps not young but with a 21yr AG certainly younger.

    We age-gappers are much less avant garde than we'd like to believe, aren't we?

    As AGRs have been around for ages, I often wonder at society's ongoing fascination with us. Surely there's something more interesting? Apparently there isn't, as I still field questions--about once a week--as to whether or not we have sex.

    I told one person no; "it" falls off when you turn 55, and I met him when he was 59.

    Always thought that OW( btw=me), stands for older woman, not old woman! So YM/YW just stands for younger in relation to me too.

    A part of me wants to say, 'you're kidding right'? People ask about your sex life?

    But they probably do. *sigh*

    You're polite. I'd probably ask them a detailed question about theirs in return.

    Nice story! Thanks for the link.

    Though this one isn't a happy story, here is another artical mentioning an age gap relationship.
    My OM grew up with the victim and his family, while he did have his issues, he was a kind person.

    25 years apart

    The article also mentions they've been together 31 years; so he was 50 and she was 29 when they started out.
    Like Abraham Lincoln once said, "You can't believe everything you read on the Internet."
