How old is too old?

Chaka Khan, 58, and her 25 yr old model boyfriend
Let's be honest and realistic ladies, I know we're all about women empowerment - what a man can do, a woman can also do...etc...but if your 25 year old son came home with a 50 something yr old woman as his woman, how would you feel? 

What should be the age limit in older women/younger men relationship? How old is too old?

    It is inappropriate for a woman to be older than the man though situations warrant this at times but for no reason will i ever marry a woman dat double my age. 2yrs-3yrs can be considered and it must be real love that exist between us.

    Well the question could also be asked "if your 25yrs old daughter comes home with a 50 year old man...how would you feel"? The fact you framed your question like this..shows how misogynistic your view of the world is. This is not about older women and younger guys but age limitations in romantic relationship between everyone. Might i add that age limitation in relationship should be left to the people involved in that relationship. Who are you to impose your myopic views on someone who might not share those views. Live and lets live.

    It's not always about love and marriage Linda. At times it's simply sex.

    Dear linda, if we as women stop antagonizing ourselves then the world would stop victimizing us and making us the topic of every story. If it was the other way round this story would have been:'how young is too young?'also concentrating on the female. Love is about understanding and knowledge not age so there should be no age limit as long as both parties are concerting and above 18 shikena!

    sincerely speaking, i'll put my foot down and say NO! i wont accept it for whatever reason. forget the 'i love her' story o. and if he refuses, i'll leave him be & dat's final! i wont play any physical motherly role other than my spiritual role of praying for him.

    Personally I don't see age as an issue even though am yet to be with a younger man. Still, i think anything above ten years difference is too much! That's my take....Meggy

    Reverse the question and ask yourself, Linda: What is the age limit for older men/younger women?

    IF YOU CAN'T ASK THE ABOVE QUESTION OR DO NOT THINK IT SHOULD BE ANSWERED, YOU SHOULD NOT EVEN THINK OF ASKING THAT LAME QUESTION YOU ASKED, OK. SICK OF WOMEN LIKE YOU PROMOTING DOUBLE STANDARDS. THEN YOU BANG ON ABOUT BLOODY EQUALITY IN THE SAME BREATH!

    Age is irrelevant. Been with girls 5 yrs younger, they did my head in; been with girls 5 yrs old, they did my head. Older or younger, no problem, as long you're not temperamental, attention whore, psychotic or an arsehole. I've spoken.

    I am sorry, if my son or daughter comes home with anyone who might be my age as a lover, I am sending them both packing. What nonsense! Love ko, love ni! Are you fking serious? I am ashamed for Chaka Khan, has it gotten to where she couldn't find a man her age? Even if this pickin came to her, she could have turned him away! Wouldn't this boy want to have children of his own? He needs to grow up and learn what life is about not get caught up in a woman who has LIVED life well well, has done drugs and partied with the best of them. NO! I can deal with a 1-10 year difference but 33 years? Ridiculous!

    why do people decive them selves that love should be the only basis for marriage, our grand parents married total strangers and it worked better than our so called marriages that are based on love. if people want to marry for money, sex or even for the sake of a change in relationship status. its no bodys business.

    Enough with the insults already pls. FYI this blog belongs to Linda Ikeji and she damn well is entitled to her opinion. You can disagree on the issue but not resort to insults and what have u.

    She asked a simple question, if it was your son, how would u feel? If u're fine with it I honestly do not pray its the fate that befalls you.

    To each his own. If chaka or demi or madonna wants a fineeee young thing in their bed, then they should not cry foul when the young thing has exploited them, become famous and move on to their age mate. Then again it could very well be d other way round. Mayb d women chew them and spit them out.

    This is not the first case and it definitely will not be the last but most importantly, we are entitled to our opinions.

    Hmmmm. Na wa o. My fear for this granny is that she could pass out and possibly pass on under intense sexual bombardment from this virile young man. You know it's very possible that he forgets sometimes that she s as old as his mum and takes her through some serious gymnastic. Make the woman no die o. But me, I no support this kind love. If they call it love. However, if the old lady just wants someone to give her good sex, well she has my nod, if the guy plays ball. Just kidding.
    Seriously they are both age innapppropriate for each other. I'm sure if she has a son this age (25), she's not gonna give her consent to this kinda relationship. Even if her son goes ahead, she ll be a sad woman deep down.

    aww cmon, if your 22 year old son brought haley berry(45 and still hot) or jennifer lopez(36 and still hot), even your 20 year old daughter would lokk older than them.

    The thing is they are adults, let them do what they like.

    if my brother comes home with a woman old enough to be my mother as a wife, i would go WAFFI on them! WHAT ARRANT NONSENSE!

    as for those insulting our linda because she asked a simple question, GO NACK YOUR HEAD FOR TRANSFORMER O JARE COUGARS & GIGOLOS!

    i disagree on both ways; NATURE CAN NEVER BE DECEIVED! One's body and mind degenerate as one grows older, that what might be so exciting to you at a certain age, might not be appealing now. It's a transitional phase and it's so good when you have someone to share it with, than trying to 'fit' into the younger / older person lifestyle, hence there is always infidelity on both sides.

    Why would i leave a fresh young male body and be rubbing off on wrinkled body????...y-u-c-k!!!

    so on BOTH sides, i DISAGREE.. both sexes should date within their age-group. finito!

    Hmm. Most women of Chaka's generation have their last child before clocking 33, so Chaka's youngest child may be older than this guy! And that is inappropriate. A 58 year old man with a 25 year old woman is also inappropriate. The fact that people do something does not make it right. These relationships are motivated by something other than love and long-term togetherness.

    A man should be with a woman that his children will not feel uneasy to introduce at least as "step-mum" and vice-versa. Most people will feel that something is inappropriate when mum introduces your school mate or junior as lover OR when dad does the same. My opinion; let's stick to +/- 5 years.

    Anonymous 11.16am - Same thing to me, a big NO!NO!NO! We know what Bianca was looking for there, money and an iconic name. Bianca Onoh would not marry Ojukwu if he was thatching roof and selling pure water on the road! As Celine, he is a pedophile to me! He knew Celine since she was a little 9 year old girl and he was already a fully grown man. I wonder when he began thinking of her as a more than a little girl with a big voice and seeing her as a "woman":/ Both situations are gross, add Woody Allen and his step daughter/wife to that list too.

    Dear linda, if we as women stop antagonizing ourselves then the world would stop victimizing us and making us the topic of every story. I started with this past comment because it so true.If a 50+ man marries/date a 25yr old girl it's that the girl is after his cash. can we please stop. Personally think the age gap is too much and wouldn't want my child boy/girl in that kind off relationship.
