Age Does Matter: 20 Celebrity May-December Romances

Men who marry younger women live longer, while women's life expectancy is lowered by a big age gap between herself and her husband. By Liana Smith-Bautista

May-December romances are not as rare as you would think, and much as the sight of older men paired with younger women is becoming cliched, so too is the cougar —the older woman matched with a younger man.

However, while studies have shown that men who marry younger women tend to live longer (no wonder Dolphy's still going strong), this article on Science Daily tells us that according to recent studies, a woman's life expectancy is lowered by a great difference in ages between herself and her husband. This is regardless of whether the wife is older or younger than her husband.

But do Hollywood stars or our own local celebs know about this? It's doubtful, given the number of links between stars with years—even decades—separating them. Check out the slide show below for a list of famous celebrity link-ups with five or more years between one partner and the other. Note that the ages shown are the stars' current ages, even though some of the relationships have since ended.
