Kyle Jones and Marjorie McCool are living proof that age is nothing but a number. The 31-year-old man and 91-year-old woman are dating. This is not a typo; they are romantically involved and are making no apologies about their relationship and staggering age difference of 60 years, according to a June 7 Canada Journal news report.
One glimpse of Kyle and Majorie in public throws off no red flags. But a closer look at the "odd" couple holding hands and puckering up causes one to question if norms of society are suddenly on a hiatus and the sky is falling.
You see, when a 31-year-old man dates a 91-year-old woman, the public goes up in arms and -- as evidenced from a deluge of comments on social media -- many begin to question Jones' motives. Some even refer to Jones as a gold digger, who is holding out for a lofty payday from life insurance proceeds. Imagine that!
Marjorie's take on the huge disparity in their ages: "When people see us out together they probably think that he’s my son, or maybe even a grandson. I have grandsons older."
Kyle goes a bit deeper and touches on the psychology and social norms of dating, at least from a Western perspective:
Everyone’s brain is wired differently, some guys prefer blondes, some brunettes, some like other guys – I like old ladies."
Harmless enough, right? After all, to each his own and the couple makes no apologies about going against the grain and disappointing the status-quo on this touchy topic.
Apparently, the 31-year-old man loves the aging "flaws" in his 91-year-old woman. Unlike some men his age, who quiver at the site of air-brushed and PhotoShopped images of women with perky assets, Kyle fancies mature women with -- as he puts it -- "platinum" manes.
And just in case you're wondering if the two have a physical relationship between the sheets, here's how Marjorie describes it:
The physical side of our relationship is wonderful. I amaze myself, he amazes me. And I like it. There's nothing better. I wear sexy outfits to bed. I try to keep my bra on though because I don't have much left."
Ironically, one of the biggest and arguably, unlikely supporters of the couple’s non-traditional relationship, is Kyle's mother, according to Huffington Post. Cecilia Jones, says her son first brought home a 50-year-old woman to meet her when he was 22.
She said Kyle told her he prefers older women because they are mature and make for good listeners. Moreover, he enjoys sitting down and talking women decades his senior. And for flavor, he said it wasn't anyone's business about what lifestyle he chooses.
Although the 31-year-old man-91-year-old woman revelation is a bit shocking, it doesn't stop there: the couple is not monogamous and is comfortable with having open relationships.
Kyle still surfs dating sites and is engaged in another relationship with at least another woman, a 68-year-old. And from the video above, they both love to display steamy touching and smooching.
Perhaps, like wine, things get better with age?
