This caught my attention. But then it probably wouldn't have so much if the man had been 70 and the woman 31 - not sure why that is though...what does mn think?

Sorry, I know it's not right, but I just can't get that Little Britain sketch out of my mind...

TinyGang Thu 14-Jul-05 13:42:24

Oh Caligula! Lol - I knew it reminded me of something!

Toothache Thu 14-Jul-05 13:43:20

PMSL Caligula!! How disturbing is that sketch!!! Borderline allowable I does think!

Gut Instinct is this is nose wrinkling icky - sorry but being honest. I would have issues if it is a 70 yr old man marrying a young lady too.
But good luck to them both

Gross!! He will probaly be a widower by the time he is forty, which is quite sad.

Its equally yuck for a man to be that much older though IMO. (Though much more common - perhaps with a smaller age gap) I would say that any age gap larger than 15 years is out of the ordinary, I wouldn't be too happy if when my daughter is tewnty she married a forty year old.....

I giggled when I saw this my grandfather 86 married a lady of 55 last year and I know its not quite the same age diff but every one was like go for it mate! I think if it had been the other way around it would have been a worse reaction! With older men its cool they can still get a woman the other way around and its like yuk why would he want her! I say good on her! followed by ummm ick feeling!

Part of me wants to just say... good luck to 'em, but the rest of me is just yelling 'ICK !'.

"I wouldn't be too happy if when my daughter is tewnty she married a forty year old....."

The head girl at our school ended up marrying her boyfriend that she was dating (and got pg by) while at school. They dated for 2yrs before she finished her A levels and she moved in with him for her last year at school ( that went down really well with the boarding house LOL).

They've now got 4 kids together and have been married for 7yrs...........their's 23yrs between them!

I once had a boyfriend whose mother was 21 years younger than his dad. They'd run off to Gretna Green together when she was 16. Then his sister, who was 24, announced that she was going to marry her bf, 48.

Not a lot they could say about it really!

I think it's lovely

marthamoo Sat 16-Jul-05 00:13:13 took the words right out of my mouth.

But you're a dentist, jasper - you're used to looking at yucky things.
