Love vs age, the question that has continuously been pondered on without any resolution. And that perhaps is the answer I think. It depends on the situation, and the person. If despite age, wealth, looks, everything, we still find ourselves needing that person desperately, thats really all that matters. Age only becomes a problem when there is no love.
Its funny how when reading Jane Eyre, I've never really noticed the immense age gap between Jane and Rochester, but I guess it truly doesn't matter:)
