Imagine what treatment your friend will get from her family, friends and society if she marries a man who is twice her age! We are assured many people start judging her that she married the man because of his wealth! Although marriages with significant age gaps aren't uncommon in many countries and cultures, we still get amused when someone from our friends or family does that. Many people believe that two years is an ideal age gap between a man and woman, and four years is the maximum. In general, men are superior to their partners in terms of age. When a woman is the senior of the couple, well, it looks little odd although it isn't uncommon. 
Age is just a number with no significance when it comes to celebrity marriages. Big age gaps don't stop celebrities from marrying their loved ones. They don't care what others would think about them. The younger partner in such marriages receives a lot of criticism; Crystal Harris for example. Celebs like Hugh Hefner have no problem marrying a girl who is young enough to be their granddaughter. The 30-year-old Harris has received a lot of criticism from all over the world for marrying 90-year-old Hugh Hefner. Well, Hefner is not alone! Here are fifteen celebrity couples with huge age gaps.
