32. I can't remember where I heard about this...
Edited on Sat Sep-15-07 10:48 AM by MilesColtrane
It might be a religious rule of thumb. (Islam?)

It concerns determining the acceptable minimum age of someone's partner in a relationship.

The older (I think it was addressed to a male) partner divides their age in half and adds 7.

So a 14 yr. old can date a 14yr. old, but no younger.

16 yr. old a 15 yr. old.

18 yr. old a 16 yr. old...... and so on.

Fred Thompson's wife just clears the limit by two and a half years using this formula.
