^This. My parents are ten years apart.

Sure it may be weird at first. But little boys get crushes all the time. Note that they were ten years older at the time of AOTC so it's not that bad.

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

I think they should use some older actors to play Padme, like Kate Beckinsale.

Well, what they don't blatenly tell you but seems clear if you watch for it is that Anakin uses the force to make Padme fall in love with him. You really start seeing it when she has an opposing view point from him and then all of a sudden changes her mind to reflect his views in some scenes. It would have been better if it were more clear but it is what it is. Which means that his fall to the dark side actually started earlier.

Am I the only one surprised that people still find it normal if an older guy loves a younger woman, but if an older woman loves a younger man she is suddenly a cougar?

It's not made blatantly clear because it never happened.
