I disagree. A lot of us make pretty significant transitions in our early twenties, what Erikson called a psychosocial moratorium. Even as late as 22, many people are still trying different senses of identity. At 29, most people have that figured out. It's a very significant difference in stage of life.

But I'll admit that it barely qualifies her as a cougar; she's a bit young for that, unless he were still a teenager. And in just a few years, the age difference would hardly be noticeable.
