35-Year Age Difference Makes Celeb Marriage Talk of Town

One celebrity marriage that has been the subject of criticism and ridicule was the May wedding between 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison and 16-year-old aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden. The marriage came just weeks before another one involving a large age difference almost took place, that between 25-year-old Crystal Harris and 85-year-old Hugh Hefner. Harris ended up backing out five days before the ceremony. Couples facing special circumstances may wish to speak to a Houston prenuptial agreement attorney.

Hutchison and Stodden married in Las Vegas after Stodden’s mother signed off on the marriage, a requirement due to Stodden’s young age. Stodden’s mother appears completely supportive of the marriage despite the large gap in age between two, saying “They are very much in love and we are so supportive of this.”

Hutchison has been appearing in films and on TV since 1988, starring in a number of hits. He had roles in “Con Air,” “The Green Mile” and “I Am Sam” and has appeared on TV series “The X-Files,” “CSI: Miami,” “Lost” and “24.” Stodden competed in the Miss Teen Washington USA pageant and hopes to be a singer. The two met when Stodden signed with Hutchison’s production company, “Dark Water.” Couples entering into marriage may wish to consider a Texas prenuptial agreement to protect each other’s assets.
