    Age Gaps on the Shows (actors age, not the characters):
    Richard and Monica: 19 year age gap.
    Paris and Asher: 35 year age gap.
    Puck and Shelby: 12 year age gap.
    Pacey and Tamara: 23 year age gap. (Pacey is meant to play a 15 year old boy, Tamara a 30 some year old teacher)
    Aria and Ezra: 2 year age gap. (On the show she's a highschool student, he's a teacher)
    Rosita and Abraham: 26 year age gap.
    Rhonda and Roman: 64 year age gap. (Talk about "granddaddy" instead of "daddy")
    Lady Edith and Anthony Strallan: 26 year age gap.
    Archie and Miss Grundy: 15 year age gap. (Another student teacher relationship)
    Walder Frey and Young Wives: Character Walder is in 90's, wed 15 year old girls. (Couldnt find actresses names, but that's a knarly age gap for the characters)
    Hayley and Rainer: 19 year age gap. (Meant to be younger and Rainer is her father's friend)
    Your welcome. An hour of my life was spent wasted calculating this.

    My parents have a 25 year age difference (actually may be 26 but I've honestly forgotten) and it's crazy to me how people think it's disgusting to them. My mom didn't marry my dad because of money (trust me he wasn't rich) and they honestly love eachother and are one of the best couples I've ever seen. Of course I disagree if you are underage dating someone that is an adult, but as long as your a legal adult and are in love I find it perfectly okay. People are so quick to judge and give my parents dirty looks and are even rude to me as well anywhere we go. My mom and I are actually mistaken for sisters and my dad as our dad (but I just believe that's because she's beautiful and ages so nicely). Anyways, just don't be so quick to assume that it's all disgusting and for money. If they're legal and both genuinely in love, then let it be. I do agree with some of these on the list though that are actually very wrong.

    If you ask me, for a relationship to be cringy over the age difference, it must fall under one of these categories:
    1. One of the participants is a minor.
    2. Even if the younger one is technically barely adult, the older one is their teacher, mentor or parental figure.
    3. The older one is so old they look ancient and deteriorated, while the younger one not even middle-aged.
    Everything else is basically a ''love knows no age'' story.

    What about A Series of Unfortunate Events? I know Olaf and Violet were never a couple, but during the Bad Beginning he definitely hit on her. I know he was trying to get the Baudelaire fortune, but I feel like there were definitely some ulterior motives when he tried to marry her.
