Sure, I agree that it's not that weird for a couple to be ten years apart, but that's assuming that the male is older. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with a guy loving a much older girl, it just feels a little odd. You know?
Cougar! *makes a frisky kitty-cat noise*
lol I just had to say it.
You're right about that. It's almost always the male that is older. In this case, Padme doesn't really qualify for Cougar status as the gap is only 5 five years. If she were thirty or something, it would be different. But this relationship is completely normal. Aside from the galactic politics and Jedi business
