A stand-up routine by Jeremy Kaplowitz is having a moment on Twitter this morning. Seinfeld and Lonstein met in Central Park when she was 17 and a senior in high school. They claimed to the press that they were just friends until she turned 18 and graduated, at which time they went public with their romantic relationship. They dated for four years, and she transferred from her private New York college where she remained living with her parents to UCLA in order to be closer to Seinfeld while he was filming his show. They broke up shortly after she graduated from college. Their relationship caused a bit of a stir, but not in the ways it would today. The agency of the teenager or young twenty-something is usually left out of the conversation, in favor of pressing the point that they are not legal, or in the case of a 18—year-old, just barely legal. I am NOT making the argument that just because she may have wanted to be in the relationship and felt adult enough to handle it, that it was fine—only that there are many young women out there myself included, when I was that age that desire older men, for a variety of reasons. On top of that, teenage girls are in that precarious time where their hormones are raging, they are trying to get a handle on their budding sexuality, and they want to feel like they own their impending adulthood. Essentially, while they are not mindless objects waiting to be plucked or preyed upon without any say in the matter, they are in a prime position for an older man of extreme power and wealth to take advantage of them for those very reasons.

Now that my boyfriend and I are beginning to talk about a future together, though, I realize that I need to consider this question of marrying outside of the church very carefully.
