Heads up folks. Sixty eight year old Paul McCartney is going to marry a woman who is 17 years younger than he is. Her mother must hate him.

            I didn't used to think so, but I've since been informed that some people believe it to be.

              He's rich, she's rich.
              They met in the Hamptons.
               
              What could be more romantic.
              She can forever state " I made it with a big beetle".

                  Mom is probably thrilled. She was probably a Beatles fan!

                    Do you really think that the money would make Mom happy if the girlfriend didn't have any?
                     
                    I think it's nice, money or not.

                      Now that I've had some time to think about it, I'd say 17 years might be a pretty good difference, as long as they're in love.

                        For those of us not in the 'Hampton's' economic group... The age difference has an impact on health insurance planning and retirement schedules. Interest items for discussion when the age difference is over a decade, as the younger partner can find themselves looking for Health coverage when the 'Senior Citizen' makes the leap to Medicare.
                          For the two involved in this story, I don't think this will be an issue, but the reading of the WILL could be an interesting social exchange between interested parties.

                            My  second husband was 15 years older and it posed no  problem.  He married me  when I had  five kids.  I figured  that a guy that brave had to be both a fighter and a lover!  We had some great years together.  My children all adored him.

                              If I married a woman 17 years junior to me, she'd be 48, a size 36 would be just about right!
