Age ain’t nuthin’ but a number. Unless those numbers are really far apart and represent the ages of two people in a relationship, then they tend to raise some eyebrows. That’s the reason some shows decide to use whopping age-gaps to create titillating (or silly) storylines. Whether they make you swoon or make you squirm, here are 10 TV couples with crazy age gaps.

10. Carrie and Aleksandr Petrovsky on Sex and the City

When Carrie Bradshaw wasn’t trying to find happily-ever-after with Mr. Big or Aiden, she was experiencing a new sort of relationship and being exposed to a wider world when she dated Aleksandr Petrovsky. A rich, successful, established artist, “The Russian” was in his fifties when the two began dating. Carrie was 38, which made Aleksandr around two full decades older than the beloved relationship writer. But their age difference was just one of the issues they had and minor in comparison to his self-involved and hugely disrespectful behaviour. Sometimes a jerk is just a jerk, no matter how old they are.

9. Frank and Alice on Friends

Phoebe was beyond happy to find out she had a little brother that she hadn’t known about. She wasn’t so happy, however, to find out that her newly discovered little brother was dating his former home economics teacher. Alice and Frank eventually won over Phoebe – not to mention asked her to be their surrogate and ended up being the parents to triplets – but that didn’t mean that it didn’t make audiences squirm when the pair would start making out on Central Perk’s couch.
