14 Eyebrow-Arching Celebrity Relationship Age Gaps

Relationship age gaps are nothing new. In fact, they've become quite common in recent years. There are a number of reasons why couples opt for a significant age gap, including the desire for a different perspective or life experience or simply because they're attracted to someone who is older or younger than they are. However, there can be challenges associated with relationships that have a large age gap.
