I’m reading this weekend that Demi Moore has asked Ashton Kutcher for a divorce after finding out he cheated with a young woman in a hot tub, or something like that. Could this signal the death of that May-to-December fantasy we were all living vicariously through? As an ‘older woman’, it just made me so darn proud of Demi when she caught the young, hunky guy. But, now this?!
Well, leave it to me to find an age-related twist to the whole thing. I’m wondering if the age difference between Demi and Ashton – more specifically, her being about 15 years older than him – had anything to do with his transgression? Was it only a matter of time before Ashton sought the arms (among other body parts) of someone his own age? Actually, I think the reported ‘temptress’ was quite a bit younger than Ashton, which may lend a whole other dimension to our discussion.
I’m not sure what I think….. what about you? Are May-to-December relationships, especially ones in which the woman is older, inherently time-limited? Should Demi have known her days were numbered with her boy-husband? (Of course, that’s not to say she hasn’t enjoyed the last few years – I’m still so proud of you, girl!)
What do you think?
