Is there a large age gap?

Some media depicts relationships/desire between people with large age gaps, either minors feeling romantically for adults or adults expressing interest in minors or people much younger than them. This section would allow people to tag whether there are relationships or desire to have a relationship with someone with a significant age gap or toward a minor, and more detail would be included in comments as to the specifics of the dynamic, as these dynamics can be distressing to witness on screen especially if you have personal experience with predatory behavior from those in a position of power over you.

This is a new trigger and I’m not 100% sure, but I think this means “a large age gap in a romantic couple” like a 21 year old woman in a relationship/having sex with a 50 year old man. If so, not really. ****SPOILERS****** The only thing I’d consider close to this is a woman who looks to be close to 80 years old (if she’s in her 70s, she took terrible care of herself by heavily smoking and drinking with lots of time in the heavy sunlight without sunscreen or something). She wants to have sex, and her elderly husband can’t have sex with her because he has a bad heart, so she comes on to a man in his 20s (they don’t do anything) and slipping naked into the bed of a woman in her 20s. It doesn’t get far because the young woman wakes up and screams. Some trivia that might matter: the actress who plays the young lead also plays the elderly woman, just with hours of heavy makeup and prosthetics making her unrecognizable . So in the second scene I mentioned, the actress slips into the bed with herself.

Visually it seems so but it’s mostly due to a youthful appearance of an actress. Aside from that, marriage is a heavily discussed theme, and it did look like a possibility for one main character to be married off to a widower who had been predatory in the past to this character [potentially as a child].

An antagonist is shown to date women a few decades younger than him, and a major plot point in S2 is the affair between 2 main characters, who have a 25-30 year age gap (both are consenting adults, but it’s still a bit off-putting to me).

Through out the film theirs a huge age gape a woman who’s 17 with a man that’s 20. Through the film the dad hates it but eventually justifies it. It’s acted as if it isn’t a big deal and that the dad being to hard it’s really gross and dumb

multiple times mentors become mates with their apprentices (which is like a teacher and their student), there's an entire book about a fully grown cat grooming a teenager cat (spottedleaf's heart), the narrative treat it as a normal and even tho the teenager is heavily traumatized, the fully grown cat doesn't suffer any consequences for it, and in the first arc (into the wild) the same teenager, now fully grown, is implied and stated by the authors to love the protagonist, which was still a child/teenager at time TLDR; yes, multiple times. it's treated as normal by the narrative even though the cats have human feelings and these are meant to be kids books.
