15 celeb gay couples that prove an age gap doesn’t matter

When Stephen Fry was about to get married to Elliott Spencer, people were upset he was marrying a man 30 years younger than him.

He was accused of ‘cradle snatching’ and being ‘creepy’ while his fianc√© Elliott Spencer was labeled a ‘gold digger’ and ‘fake’.

But who’s to say what their relationship is like?

Other gay couples have proved that you can form a real, loving relationship that proves age is just a number.
