- Love is not picky when it comes to setting up two souls, it does not stare itself blind against age
- These couples may be years apart in age, they are connected on a deeper level
- When looking at the couples who disregard age so easily, it is hard not to believe that love is blind - but in a good way
When love comes knocking on your door, will you turn it away? What if the person standing on the other side of the door is 15 years older than you?
Sometimes the perfect person for someone doesn't look like handsome prince charming or beautiful Belle, but it's still real.
And sometimes a person's soulmate is nestled inside the body of a much older person. But an age difference does not make a true connection less real.
24-year-old Politics student Dee found true love with John, a man who is 35 years older than her. And despite most of Dee's family disapproving their relationship, the couple is very happy.
Dee's mother is happy for the two because she can see that her daughter is in love and happily so.
The young woman can't think of anyone else she'd rather spend her life with. She also says John gives really good cuddles - and we all know the importance of a good cuddle.
Dee stated: "Age doesn't matter if two people really care about each other."
And if the couple is truly happy, who can tell them they're wrong?
Dee and John are not the first or last couple to find love and happiness regardless of age. There are many famous couples that show us that age is absolutely irrelevant.
