After a string of heartaches, Kylie, 47, is hoping she’ll finally be lucky in love with British actor Joshua Sasse, 28, whom she’s set to marry.
Addressing their 19-year age gap on Australian TV show The Project recently, the pop star revealed: “There’s some mention of that [his age], but for whatever reason, people are pretty much leaving us to just get on with it.
“I think the general consensus is that we kind of look right together.
So even though on paper it might not look right, it just is right.” When she first wrote Older Women/Younger Men in 2000, best-selling author — who was also dating a man almost 20 years her junior at the time — was labelled a ‘prostitute’, ‘lesbian’ and ‘witch’.
“For example, if the woman is 40 and the man is 25, it can all be very passionate and romantic.

Experts say a generation gap can work in a couple’s favour.WHEN Jean Lowes met her husband John at work, the first thing she noticed was his sparkly brown eyes and cheeky smile not his age.Despite their near decade age difference, the pair connected instantly and soon went from workmates to soulmates.“The evolution that I’m seeing occurring with more rapidity is men in their mid-late 40s marrying women in their mid-late 60s.I have letters from women in their 80s who have suitors in their 60s — that’s when I know we have real change.” Self-confidence, single-mindedness and sexual prowess are just some of the qualities making older women more and more attractive to modern men in their prime, according to one new dating agency here.“We are certainly seeing an increase in our clinics of post- menopausal women who are sexually active,” says Caitriona Henchion, medical director of the Irish Family Planning Association.
