There are actually a lot more but we decided to cut the list there.
But the list brings up a great question: Why are there so many famous intergenerational gay couples?
There is a great hunger on the part of many gay men to be in stable, loving relationships and this just might be a driving force behind the possible rise in intergenerational couples.First, we have to define what we mean by intergenerational.For my purposes I peg it at a 10 year difference between couples.Now, there have always been intergenerational gay couples but they do seem to be more common these days.
One reason might be the shift towards more conservative, traditional views of couplehood.
Of course there are a lot of powerful forces (like ageism) keeping most gay couples in generational parity (more on that later).
