    What are the actual concrete arguments against

    age gap relationships? I'm honestly super curious about what causes people to hate them so much. Are there rational arguments that can be backed up or is it mostly societal norms?

    I am happy to say that I am in a loving age-gap

    relationship. When two people can connect on a deeper level, surface level artifacts such as age and gender become nearly meaningless. I am so grateful for the love we share. You are unforgettable, and always safe in my heart.
