May-December marriage
 n.— «Now, with the possible candidacy of Fred D. Thompson, the grandfatherly actor and former Republican senator from Tennessee, whose second wife is almost a quarter-century his junior, comes a less palatable inquiry that is spurring debate in Internet chat rooms, on cable television and on talk radio: Is America ready for a president with a trophy wife?—One writer described the May-December marriage as “gross,” while others said Mrs. Thompson was an outright liability.» —“Will Her Face Determine His Fortune?” by Susan Saulny New York Times July 8, 2007.
