Which couple would get more dirty looks?
Which couple would get more dirty looks? A gay couple? An interracial couple? A couple with a man 40+ dating a college aged girl? None of these couples would be breaking any American laws but some people still would be uptight about it and give them dirty looks or make smart remarks.

The old dude and the schoolgirl. Interracial isn't a major issue anymore and gays have enough support that many won't look twice.
The vast majority, however, are still very stuck on age difference though, and it's prettyuch acceptable to judge a couple like that.

The older geezer. Every man over 30 would be staring and thinking "Good Man" , some of the women would stare, and might even be indignant.
We have far too much Bias that is still hurtful that is non-racial. People in Western Societies feel that it is not discriminatory to pick on Small people, Fat people, or Old people. It's laughed at and accepted, which is very wrong.

I have a sister who married a much older man, you would not believe the flack she got for it.

My Wife is substantially younger than me. The difference is 18 1/2 years.
I'm slightly more fortunate than many, as I probably appear to be about 15 years younger than I really am, when my friends were 16, everyone thought I was 8. LOL.
Now if I actually had looked my age when I met her - 41 I'd have probably had a decent amount of ridicule.

Unfortunately you probably would, but if I were you, take a run at them anyway. You only live once right?. Lol.
In all seriousness, I am fortunate that my child does not see colour. The reason being that he was raised with No Religious influence of any kind. WASPS - (white anglo-saxon protestants) are among the most racist today. They raise their children to look at the Asian, Black, Mullato with disfavour, based purely on intollerance, racial bias and complete ignorance.
It also jumps religious lines as well. Far too many WASPS look at Muslims as only terrorists, Jews as only greedy controlling people, and Asians as inherently bad drivers that make good duck. They happen to be white, and things that influence this indoctrination came only from The Church.
