          Does Age Matter?

          September 21, 2007

          Have you ever seen an older man with a younger woman by his side and wondered, “Is he her father or her husband?” What would you think if a 38-year-old woman had an 18-year-old boyfriend? Can May-December romances succeed? 



          Reality Bites

          Christopher, 49, and Adrianne, 25, met on the reality show, The Surreal Life 4, fell in love and planned their wedding on My Fair Brady. Just over a year into wedlock, they say their 24-year age gap is the cause of their conflict.


          “We have blowouts every week.”



          Dr. Phil’s Prediction

          Adrianne says when they fight, Christopher says things that he knows will hurt her. Christopher admits he gets frustrated but doesn’t mean what he says in anger. Dr. Phil reveals the one thing about a couple that he can use to predict divorce. 


          Is this a generational problem or something else?



          Harmful Relationship?

          Shelly, 38, has been involved with Mark, 18, for four months. They met through Shelly’s 17-year-old son, who is Mark’s good friend. Shelly says he makes her feel beautiful but wonders if she’s causing him or her children harm.


          “Mark is special because he’s really innocent.”



          “So Wrong on So Many Levels”

          Mark says when he met Shelly, he couldn’t stop looking at her because she was so beautiful. Dr. Phil questions him about his relationship with his mother and how that may be a factor in why he’s drawn to an older woman.


          Dr. Phil doesn’t mince words in telling Shelly what he thinks.
