I'm under the impression that it's better if the woman is older
I'm writing a story with a twenty something girl and a 14 yo boy. I'm wondering if this feels about right or if the age difference might putting some people off.
It seems socially that it doesn't seem to be as extreme for the woman to be older than the male, even though it's still frowned upon. But if it were switched around, it will really offend people.
It's a story about a woman who cheats on her spouse. The boy gets infatuated with her, and she lets things go where they naturally go. It's important to the story that he's younger, because that creates conflicts (with parents...) and contrast (with older spouse...)
