It doesn't really matter, but it always bothered me when there was a noticeable difference. Like...9th graders in a relationship with 5th graders or something. That bothers me.

But once people reach 18/21, I don't really mind the age gap, as long it's not over 20 years.

How do you explain the limitation of 20 years difference?

\\

Person #1 : 20years old.

Person #2 : 45 years old.

Person #2 could be person #1's parent.

The best rule is /2 + 7.
If you are 30 for exmple, then 30/2 is 15, 15+7 is 21. 21 is the minimal for you.
If you are 18, then 18/2 is 9, 9+7 is 15. Its quite risky at that age, so dont count on that when it come to under the age of 18 if you are not both under 18.

If you are 18 and the other parthner is under, then there parents {!!!} can call it a rap e, and it will be a one by law. So if your GF/BF parents dont like you, beware.

Hmmm... I've never heard of that but it's a good limit. I think the lowest it should be for you to do that is 20 though...

yes, age does matter in a relationships. But if you the two people involved in the relationship are truly in love age does not matter unless they are kids,pre-teens or teens because these people will usually have premature minds(not book knowledge but life experiences knowledge) and sometimes its the hormones during puberty in teens that make you sometimes fall madly in love
all i'm saying is make the relationship be worth the risk because if she is not the one it's not worth it as people say

That is statutory r@pe, which has to do with age...and there are protections for if you were dating while both underage and then one became "of age" while the other was still underage
