* In ''WebOriginal/YouCouldMakeALife'', the 35-year-old Mike is very reluctant to get into a relationship with the sexually inexperienced 18-year-old Liam who looks even younger than his age. The fact that the age/size difference actually [[CasualKink turns Mike on]] makes him feel even dirtier. Even when he inevitably gives in to Liam's persistence, he lives with the constant belief/fear that Liam will eventually outgrow his crush on him. [[spoiler:He doesn't.]]

** Sir Thomas Lundie would have been 30-40 years older than his second wife (at the start of the action, she's in her mid-thirties; Sir Patrick, Sir Thomas's younger brother, is 70).

* In ''Literature/OliverTwist'', it's implied by [[spoiler: Mr. Brownlow]] that [[spoiler: Oliver and Monks's father Edwin Leeford and his unnamed first wife aka Monks's mother]] were like this. Uncommonly, ''she'' was the older one. And theirs was a very unhappy union.

* One of these is the center of a big plot point in Chilean SoapOpera ''Romane''. The father of the female lead Jovanka (Melquiades, leader of the local Roma group, a [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Foxy Grandpa]] in his late 50's/early 60's) marries a girl in her late teens (Milenka, who's younger even than Jovanka's daughters aka Melquiades's own ''granddaughters''). In a subversion, it begins as a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage since Milenka herself ''does'' like Melquiades as a person. Predictably, however, the drama started to come out, and soon things went downhill.

* In the ''Series/MasterpieceTheatre'' miniseries ''Reckless'', 30-something protagonist Owen Springer falls in love with his boss's 40-something wife, Anna. (there is a 19-year age difference between the actors).






* No age is given for the [[PlayerCharacter Inquisitor]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', but most customization options make them look like they're in their 20s, and dialogue from other characters seems to imply a younger character. While most of the romance options are in their 20s or 30s, Blackwall and Solas both appear to be in their mid-40s, meaning a romance with either of them could qualify as this trope [[spoiler: although Solas turns out to be about 200x older than that, making it a MayFlyDecemberRomance]].

* In ''CrookedHouse'', Aristide Leonides second wife Brenda is in 30s, while he was in his 80s. His children regard her as TheGoldDigger, while she claims she was in love with him. The more objective characters, such as Sophia, at least admit that he was in love with her.

* ''Fanfic/MrAndMrsGold'': As Belle and Rumpelstiltskin, she is in her early twenties while he is literally hundreds of years old. As Rose and Mr. Gold, Emma was sure that he was her father or father-in-law before she saw them kiss. Emma even once refers to Mr. Gold as a “cradle-robber.”

* While by definition "Es war Sommer" by Peter Maffay (he was 16, she 31) does not count, German comedian Otto Waalkes made a parody of the song that reduced any potential [[note]]"Officially", they go to the strand and hold hands until sundown. YMMV.[[/note]] UnfortunateImplications by increasing his age to 18. Oh, and hers to 88.
