Question: How big is an age gap in a relationship?

The average age difference between partners has generally been around three years. 1 But sometimes love can be age-blind. As such, May-December relationships are not unheard of, thanks, in some part, to societys burgeoning acceptance of age gaps.

Whats considered a big age gap?

Across Western countries, about 8% of all married heterosexual couples can be classified as having a large age gap (ten years or more). These generally involve older men partnered with younger women. About 25% of male-male unions and 15% of female-female unions demonstrate a large age gap.
