DAVID GILMOUR's wife has spoken out against age gaps in relationships - because she's convinced there's no way her marriage can have a "great ending".
Novelist Polly Samson is 16 years younger than the 64-year-old Pink Floyd legend and while the couple is happy, she admits the age difference is far from "ideal".
She tells The Lady magazine, "When I had a daughter, I started thinking about my life and whether I'd want it for her. And actually I wouldn't. I don't think it's an ideal thing to be married to someone with a huge age difference.
"Happy as I am in my marriage, there isn't going to be a great ending."

yeah that's what Polly says... but she's not gonna say she's not happy! She's got fame and money because of him so I wonder if it were the same if he were poor... I really wonder and I know the answer.

I don't think any marriage can have a great ending whatever the age gap. Neither can life itself, unfortunately. We're all doomed to a sad end either lying zonked out in a sterile hospital ward, having an aneurism on the 8.15 from Paddington or sitting in an old folks home wondering where you left your shoes. Personally I'd like to go sitting outside my favourite restaurant in the South of France with a glass of decent wine in my claw. The wife, however, would be left in a state of high dudgeon at my passing and vice versa.The best we can hope for is to make the happiness last as long as we're able - then to slide gracefully into oblivion with as little fuss as possible. Easier said than done...
