    18 years is not an age difference to make a fuss about. I didn’t hear anyone tut-tut at Teddy Rhodes and Isabel Leonard. And I don’t think anyone even knows how old Mr. Harteros is. Why is it always the cougars that get the pearl-clutching?

    And Renee and Ward stopped being news about 30 years ago. Yawn

      It’s just the way our culture is wired. My mother’s second husband was 15 years younger than her. I don’t think the local tongues stopped wagging until the Silver Wedding Anniversary party. My dad’s second wife was almost as young and I don’t think I ever heard a word about age difference from anyone.
