Okay, first up, that whole age thing is just one more thing that society has saddled us with. There's nothing absolute about it; it's about as arbitrary as you can get. Personally, I don't want to have a relationship with any teenagers because, well, I don't like teenagers in general.

On the "half plus seven" rule, as you get older, that becomes less of a rule and more of a rough guideline. At thirty-six, half plus seven is twenty-five, which cuts out four post-twenty years. Hell with that.

So, I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with a large age difference in a couple or two people just having sex. I'm also unsurprised that Steph and Kim do think it's inherently wrong.

it doesn't surprise me that they feel this way either. Not really, but that said, when I explained my reasons why I disagreed, they seemed unable to give me a cohesive argument for it other than basically "its wrong" or "you can't have anything in common because your life experience is too different." The "it's wrong" argument is lame and essentially comes down to "eww, its icky" which holds no water with me. The other argument I'd entertain, I just want someone to explain to me how its any different than arguing that whites shouldn't date blacks because their life experiences are so different. (Steph and Kim's only argument here was that our life experiences aren't that different. George and I totally called bullshit here)

Man, Samantha's father pulled the "different life experiences" argument. It was ironic because our life experiences actually hadn't been all that different.

An age difference argument I could get behind, to get back to the subject at hand, is when the older partner is an "adult" and the younger partner is a "child". That potentially falls under abuse of authority to me. If the younger partner is past the societal age of majority, then that doesn't hold water. "It's just wrong" holds less water than a sieve.

but again, to me that's an argument of maturity. There are plenty of 33 year olds in this world that I wouldn't date just because they are in a different place in their lives than I am. Either less mature or more.

"Potentially" is very important. It's by no means automatic.

again... fair point.
