An age limit is put on many things in this world. Just because there is no age limit on something doesn't mean that many people don't have opinions that there should be age-limits on some things. One thing that is a constant debate on age is love. It seems like there is a starting age and ending age on when it is acceptable to love someone these days. The age limits vary depending on where in the world you go, but lets focus on America. When an elder hears a sixteen-year-old say their "in love," they usually spit back some smart remark about how they don't know what love is. But really that elder isn't in the sixteen year olds shoes and doesn't see things through his/her eyes. When most people hear of a sixty-year old dating many find the idea absurd, but really why should their chances at love be shot down just because of their age? When people see two eight year olds hugging they think its cute, when the kids grow up to be teens it's not so sweet anymore in many parents eyes. Every emotion exists no matter who you are or what age you are, love is an emotion just like happiness or hate. I don't think that adults should be so judgmental of "young love," or "new love," (for elderly.) Some things have an age requirement or limit, when it comes to love however what’s age got to do with it?
