What's In An Age Gap? Kelsey Grammer Hits Beach With Wife Who Is 26 Years Younger

June 29, 2015 2 min read

60 year old Kelsey Grammer was spotted on a Miami beach with his 34 year old wife, Kayte Walsh. The two appear perfectly happy. As you can expect, people are getting all worked up over the age difference. The question is: does it really matter? When I was 23 (and for several years following) I was involved with a man 23 years older than myself. There is a long way between 23 and 46. The people who knew about the relationship were disgusted and I became indignant. It wasn't their business and why did it matter blah blah blah. But the thing is, over time, it did matter. I started to realize that he had lived what seemed like an entire lifetime before I was even born. It made me sad. It was a part of him I could never understand, we were raised in different generations. He already had children and wasn't going to be having any more. If I were going to stay in the relationship, I'd have to give up that particular hope for my future. There were lots of unhealthy patterns at play in our relationship and I don't want to dwell on it except to say, I understand how complicated this issue can be. In our connection, it never mattered. Age was a number. I'm an old soul, I can pass but there was still a disconnect, was it a deal breaker? Hard to say. I would have to think, more often than not, that dating someone closer to your own age lends itself to a greater understanding of the other's world view as there are things common in people generationally. And I would think that life goals may be more in line when starting from a similar place chronologically. But obviously, that isn't always the case. My experience with older men has suggested that having children is out of the picture but Grammer and Walsh have 2 children together. There are exceptions. So, does a gap really matter? It would seem that most people believe a large age gap is inappropriate and a more than a little 'gross' but if they are happy, who cares? Common ground is common ground and it can be found with any age range. Maybe I should recuse myself, many of my important relationships have a large age gap. My closest friend is 20 years older, for example. Outside of our discussions of childhood, there is no gap between us at all. You'd never know. I'd have to think this would be possible with a lover. If we truly see the beauty and value in another human, age shouldn't matter. I know people think about being intimate with bodies so much older and aren't sure they could do it, but does beauty really fade with age? I say no. A beautiful person is a beautiful person whether the package is 20 or 80. Yes, there are physical differences but that is all they are. I'd love to know what you think. Does age really matter? Is there such a thing as too old? h/t: Daily Mail

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
