May and September

(redirected from May-and-September)

May and September

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 September, which comes later in the year and marks the beginning of autumn. Everyone in his family had reservations about his May and September relationship, but eventually they realized that the love between him and his older wife was genuine. I know a May and September 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.
