    Welcome to the community @hernandez09. :)

    This is an interesting one. The law tends not to care about age gaps, assuming both people are of consenting age and neither one is in a position trust over the other (e.g. their teacher).

    It's also worth noting, though, that age gaps can come with some extra considerations. Sometimes, they can create a power imbalance in a relationship which can lead to unhealthy behaviours. And there may be some practical things to consider. For example, both people could want very different things from life depending on how old they are. That's not always the case, of course, and many people are quite happy in relationships with big age gaps. It's about what works for them.

    Is this something related to a situation you're in, hernandez? :)
