I think a 20 years age gap (and anything below) between 2 adults is fine. Anything larger than 20 years is just too much. What do you think?

Varies between people based on preferences, personal experience and the experiences of friends & family members.
Some people prefer same age, others up to 2 years difference in age, quite a few are okay with up to a 10 year age gap.
Whilst a few prefer an age gap of several decades or have no opinions on age gaps between adult couples.

Anna Nicole Smith married an 89 year old when she was 27, her youngest stepson was 28 years older than her.
I'm only attracted to guys older than me and date with a minimum 15 year age gap.
Dated guys in their 50s and 60s as a 16-17 year old.

Large age gaps are not really an issue personally; it's more about a maturity gap. You have to ask urself what stages of their lives each person is at. A 16 year old dating a 21 year old is 'only' a 5 year age gap but I find that more disturbing that a 25 year old dating a 60 year old even though the age gap is 7 times bigger.

If they’re adults it doesn’t really matter as it’s nobody else’s business.

I will tell you what I think since you asked, as long as two people are over the age of twenty and are mature, then age is merely a number. I have known people with large age groups, many of which are my relatives.

Thanks for your opinion.
Why over twenty as oppose to eighteen or sixteen?
