Help me think of examples of May/December relationships in books and movies, please!<br><br>
My Fair Lady- Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins.<br>
Jane Eyre- Jane and Mr Rochester<br><br>
There are so many, many more, but I can't think of any right now!

Lupin and Tonks, HP and the Deathly Hallows<br><br>
Can't believe I didn't remember Marianne and Colonel Brandon. I'm reading S & S currently.<br><br>
Jo and her professor! For ages after I read that my dream husband was a professor, several years older than me, in a tweed jacket with leather elbow patches. Seriously. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush">

Bf and I loved this movie so much. Peter O'Toole was so wonderful and the movie was so heartbreaking for so many reasons.

I love Gary Cooper - I liked <i>Love in the Afternoon</i> (1957) with him and IIRC Hepburn.<br><br>
Aragorn and Arwen are a reverse May/December (LOTR) of course. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Since she was immortal and centuries old, and he was slightly less than 100. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Oh, if we're going to include Aragorn and Arwen, we need Buffy and Angel! Or Buffy and her "cradle-robbing creature of the night boyfriend," as she puts it.

I think there was actually a British show called "May December" or something. But I'm getting it mixed up with As Time Goes By since the daughter from that show was the wife in the May/December show.

"How Stella Got Her Groove Back" (I think Stella was mid 40s and Winston was early 20s)<br><br>
"Gone With the Wind" (IIRC, Scarlett was around 16 and Rhett mid 30s when they first met)<br><br>
"Pretty Woman" (I'm not sure they state their ages, but Vivien looks early 20s to me there and Richard Gere looked mid 40s)
