May-December

(redirected from May December)

May-December

Used to describe a romantic relationship in which one person is much younger than the other. The age of the younger person is likened to May, which marks the beginning of spring, while the age of the older person is likened to December, which comes late in the year and marks the start of winter. Everyone in his family had reservations about his May-to-December relationship, but eventually they realized that the love between him and his older wife was genuine. I know a May-to-December romance may not seem like a big deal right now, but you've got to think about the complications you might encounter down the line.
