so they allow a 46 year old "cougaristic" director to get married to a 23 year old actor, but are so against gay marriage. I'm not saying they shouldn't get married, i respect it and all. just think about it, when she was 23 he wasn't even born, 4 kids at the age of 23 is tough, imagine them 10-20 years later and getting the same tattoo is a huge commitment. I totally respect his view upon love and that he values qualities, but it's like marrying your own mum. He has a whole life to live but he's going to be trapped taking care of 5 females. Hes mature for his age, i know, seriously though 5.. Sure Sam may be independent now, Aaron is going to have to raise little girls while taking care of his wife when shes about 50+. I sound a bit harsh.. what if shes a gold-digger? what if she just wanted the "attention?" What if shes only together because of her past relation ships? Shes beautiful for her age. But since she is older and "wiser" she should've found someone more relatable and someone who is her age. Its a bit creepy how he was only 17..

That is sorta weird tho cuz like, imagine like his siblings (if he has any) have kids and everything and like, they'd be like whoa, is that my auntie or my grandma..... and their kids would (aaron's kids) be all like mommy? why are so old but daddy is sooooo young. and vice versa.... again NO OFFENSE...... it's just weird....
juju149 juju149 5 years
Er mmmmm, just imagine. When she was twenty three years old, HE WAS A BABY...... I mean, love is love and everything and you can't stop that but he is still toooo young. He really shouldn't be getting married at that age. he hasn't even fully lived out his adult life yet. he just got out of his parent's house (practically) and now he wants to get married???? That woman should have already been done with having a husband and everything a few kids even..... if he wants kids, he had better act now while he can.... and what about college?????? Just like rockberry said NO OFFENSE.

Personally i think its wrong.....no offense or anything but i agree with the others in saying that hes only 19. Hes practically a teenager! Shes a grown woman who should find her herself a descent man not a boy who could be her son. That is literally the age difference between my mother and I. Like I said...No Offense

That is disgusting. He is way to young to be getting married, especially to a 42 year old woman who could be his grandma! Ew..can't believe he chose to snogg with her. That is soo nasty.

I'm so happy for them. I think they make a cute couple. I don't see a problem with the age gap; If they are both happy, then what does it matter?

also, i should correct my first comment: 'it makes me lose a lil respect for her art', sorry!

littlemunckin: i think that's what troubles me too, the fact that he is still a teenager (mind you he could turn 20 tomorrow). i would have thought that after her previous marriage Sam Taylor-Wood would want to live a little with her new found freedom. unless she has a different outlook. gah. it's celebs and wtf do i know anyway? :P

hills i agree with what your saying and I know I shouldnt find it weird because, as you say, men marry younger woman all the time, but i just find it...bizarre. I think its the fact that he's 19 - hes still a teenager! Wouldnt be so odd if he was in his early twenties or something, I dont know why it makes a difference lol, it just seems to in my head!

i dont see the problem, he's not a kid, and even though id think twice about marrying a guy 23 yrs older than me and getting married at my age if they are happy then wats up? you see guys who are like 70 getting married to 20 yr olds and thats been happening for years, i think its cool that women can do that too, why should it be frowned upon, men marry younger girls all the time.

sorry, but that poor kid looks blinded by the lights imho. i don't know that i like knowing about Sam Taylor-Wood's love life; it makes me lose a little respect for it i guess.
