When does age stop to matter? In the past a common faux pas for relationships was young girls with older boys or older women with younger men; age got in the way and served as a hindrance. Nowadays age is not so much a setback for relationships (within the law naturally); anything goes and even television shows celebrate the societal norm of age not being problematic.
Children were once considered adults once they turned 18, but nowadays that doesn’t seem to be so important. In parts of the UK children emerge from a chrysalis of childhood and are legally adults at the age of 16. Even though 16 is the legal age for it; working (part time aside) used to be regarded as solely for adults, well until age blurred this line too. The kids are emerging early out of their chrysalis and spreading their wings over the adulthood line long before we expect them to.

In some respects, age is only a couple of numbers side by side - it is how we wear age and maturity that really matters.
Age doesn’t matter folks!
And yes, it was jealousy of Frida Gustavsson.
