Back in the day it was an odd pairing referred to as a "May/December" romance meaning the younger person in the relationship was May (usually the younger woman) and December was the older man.
Of course things have changed and now it's commonplace to see relationships like this. Research shows that the average age difference in most relationships where the guy is older, is 4 years and 7 months.

Ex: a 50 year old man shouldn't be in a relationship with a woman younger than 32.
