Dear Katy,

Thank you for your comment.

I agree, I believe it’s inter personal and whom we find a connection with. I do believe, once someone is well past their age of adulthood that personal choices should be influenced by their own happiness.

I think this age-gap stigma also breeds this odd idea of fertility shaming”, which I’ve noticed is something my female friends tend to struggle with — that after a certain age, society views them as discarded objects because they cannot reproduce anymore; when in fact it shouldn’t be a concern if two consenting adults never intended on having children anyways or could even adopt if they wanted to.

I think a large part of it is project of insecurity, far too often we love judging others because it makes “us” feel uncomfortable rather than be happy to the other person and accepting it.

Warm Regards,
Nabeel.
