I wouldn't put it past people these days.
That's the part that baffles me (the rest I can understand why - he's an idiot, much less than 41 years mature). You would think that anyone would know that going public like that is painting a giant target on your face for the rest of your life. (regardless of the success or failure of the relationship).
After I split from my ex- (I would say got divorced, but that took a while to get finalized, and we were living in separate states well before that), I got interest from a lot of women, including a couple that were almost the same age difference younger than I. I passed on them - paused for a second to admire the taut youthful bods sure - but never started down the path to making something happen, because it was sooo quickly apparent in each specific instance that we were in completely different chapters of our lives. I have to suspect this guy is in a fog, because I don't see how it could work to last even if they both are sincerely committed. The children issue alone to start with. She'll want kids of her own soon enough , say a couple between now and 25. That'd make him 67 when littlest one graduates high school (I'll be 55 when that happens for me, dreading it and wish I had started 10 years sooner, but that's another story). I suppose that would be karma kicking him in the posterior.
I suppose I should note that my fiance is a dozen years younger than I, and I can list dozens of reasons why we make sense together, but generally speaking, the further younger I could go, the more and more unlikely it is I could find that level of relationship compatibility. Just the way it is.
We walk the plank with our eyes wide open.
