    I'm all for true love but this...
    After the birth of the baby, Sam will have four kids to look after. :rolleyes: Sounds like hard work. Good luck to them anyway.

    :o :heart: the guy from Nearly Famous?.. ugh, can't blame her. :lol:

    That's mostly what I have to say.. their relationship is certainly the controversial kind but.. it's not like she's a murderer or anything. my best wishes. :meow:

    All I can say is that I wish them the best of luck. They certainly have a big age gap, but my reaction is the same as when they announced their engagement last year, that if they are happy then that is all that matters and they definitely deserve happiness, particularly Sam after battling cancer twice at a youngish age. I guess if they wanted to have kids together, they needed to act sooner rather than later, which is obviously what they did. Anyway, I can't wait to see Nowhere Boy when it is released where I live and I think that they are two very talented individuals, so good luck to them.

    And like MulletProof said, I do not blame her. Aaron Johnson is gorgeous :heart:.

    congrats!

    why is it when women date younger men it always causes this big stir but an older man with a younger woman....??

    anyway i like sam and aaron seems very mature and intelligent so it's not unfeasible in my eyes. and i agree i can't wait to see nowhere boy either!

    Plenty of older men in age-gap relationships with society's total approval, so I wish them all the best.

    Besides, after what she's been through, she probably realises that life's too short to give a damn about social conventions.

    I agree with this! If the ages were reversed there would probably be far fewer people finding it shocking.

    Her previous marriage didn't work out and they were a similar age so that should be an indication that these things don't necessarily matter much in making relationships work!

    Congratulations to them!

    yeah i am all my hands pro equality - younger man with older woman is , for me , the same situation as younger woman and older man but - 19 nine old father is no-no situation in any case. Plus what it will be after 10 years?

    I feel sorry for Aaron's mother. I would be so pissed if my 19 year old son got someone pregnant. I don't care how in love they are or how old she is. When a man is 19 and getting married. Big life changes.

    Her daughter is 12 and her fiance is 19. That is some Jerry Springer stuff right there.

    Agreed ... nothing like a life-threatening illness to stop you worrying 10 years ahead.

    the thing i find troubling is that he's 19 and having a child. its not the relationship-- good for them, they found love. its their life but wouldnt he want a chance to at least grow as a man before becoming a father? shrugs.

    a lil side note but when young women are with older men, most people think they are gold diggers.. does the same not apply for young men and older women? (this thought came from the tiger woods scandal where one women said she wanted to get pregnant to secure herself financially.)

    yeah well not all 19 yr olds are aaron johnson and they certainly don't lead the life he does either.

    i don't think it's very fair nor their right to pass moral judgements on people especially where there is no crime happening. if they feel secure enough in their own relationship and have the support of their families then who are we to say anything?

    simons,i'm talking specifically about the scrutiny sam has received. you would hardly ever hear anything if that was an older man. oh no he's just being a playboy.

    I agree Scott. The double standards are ridiculous.

    ---

    Anyway, I understand that people think 19 is too young to have a child and that he should wait until he is older, but the thing is, she is 42 so they probably can't wait much longer as once you are over 35, I understand that it is harder and more risky to have children.

    ^ And if it's not the age gap people are at a doozy about but claiming its a no no to be a parent at 19....why? He's an adult and so is she. If they are making this comitment to be together, they have the right to comitt to a child while they can. She's getting older and it wont be wise to really wait until they settle into their marriage and to what people would feel is a good buffer of married time to try to get pregnant or a proper age for him. Life shouldnt be about these assumed appropriate times/ages for things. Who gives a f***? People should do things when they need to.

    Also, There's a big defining change in a persons life between lets say 12 years old and 19 even though it's only 7 years of change. That's when people become adults and being in the industry you're more adult than the average your age. Not to say every 19 year old should have a baby as some are not at that level of maturity and commitment. I'm 21 and I am not at that point of commitment but feel if it happens I am mature enough to become committed fully to my new life as a mom. just because I am not ready doesn't mean another person younger than me cannot be. My friend just turned 19 and had a planned pregnancy....few months down the line now and she's a terrific mom and very content. This is where she felt her life is supposed to be. More power to her. It's the same thing as our friends pursuing college- they're just molding the lives that they want and one shouldn't be acceptable and one not.

    I would say it's a bad idea if at any age(yeah more often than not it's teenagers) that can't afford to provide everything for this child or have the full time commitment willing to put aside many "fun" things of your own to give this kid attention and love. It's a bad idea to start something without having the right tools fundamental for this persuit to thrive.

    If its the age gap, yeah theres a double standard, but even so age isn't a thing that carries the most weight in compatibility. Yeah some people are comfortable in their age range but thats them and not everyone should fit a mold. I don't and I don't think it's anyones business to tell me to fit an ideal as it has nothing to do with them. It's funny to still think that my partner in life was a senior in highschool, had a car, had a girlfriend and worked at MGM Grand Hotels arcade while I was a little 2nd grader who played at that arcade and was too young to not be supervised by my mom while playing. Who gives a f***? It's not like he tried to score a date then- that would've been wrong. I'm an adult now and found ourselves to be an ideal fit. It's a beautiful life we lead and if romance, if finding our "soulmates" "the one" is this big dream for a majority of the world and a big deal to attain....when someone has that it is to be celebrated.

    I think this is BEAUTIFUL and I hope everything will be fine with mother and child as this is a risky pregnancy.

    Life is too short to be living in a mold. Life is too short to live it judgingly.

    Sorry I'm on so a rant but I just dont get when people judge things into a ideal. It has nothing to do with us and doesnt affect us how someone lives their life.
