Scientists believe that the perfect age gap between a wife and a husband is one year. In this case, spouses have a much smaller chance of separation at just 3%. If the difference is more than five years, they’re 18% more likely to split up, and if the gap is more than 20 years, the divorce risk is 95%. But many Hollywood couples are already set to refute this data.
We've made a list of 10 celebrity couples whose age gap is enormous, and they’ve been together for more than 15 years.
10. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
Age gap: 25 years.
Together: since 1998 (20 years).
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones celebrate their birthdays together: they were both born on the 25th of September (with a difference of 25 years.) They met in 1998 and got married in 2000. The couple made their way through some really tough challenges: Michael’s cancer, Catherine’s mental disorder, and even an attempt to divorce.
Today, they raise their son Dylan Michael (born in 2000) and daughter Carys Zeta (born in 2003).
