Why George Lucas’ Marriage to a Younger Woman Works

Sugar Daddy George Lucas  Marriage Younger WomanGeorge Lucas has joined the ranks of famous sugar daddy hus­bands. The 69-year-old Star Wars direc­tor tied the knot with his long­time girl­friend, 44-year-old Mel­lody Hob­son, on June 22, 2013. The cou­ple first started dat­ing in 2006 after meet­ing at a busi­ness con­fer­ence, and Lucas pro­posed in Jan­u­ary 2013. Their wed­ding cer­e­mony took place at a hotel in Chicago in front of a famous guest list, which included the likes of actor Samuel L. Jack­son and direc­tor Ron Howard.

Lucas and Hob­son aren’t obliv­i­ous to the 25-year age gap between them, but they’ve been fairly open about why their rela­tion­ship has thrived despite it. “I think it works because we are extra­or­di­nar­ily open-minded peo­ple, and we’re open to what the uni­verse brings us,” she revealed in an inter­view with Oprah Win­frey. “We didn’t have pre­con­ceived ideas about what a part­ner­ship should be, and so we allowed our­selves to dis­cover some­thing that was unexpected.”

Lucas and Hob­son are a per­fect exam­ple of how it isn’t always all about money when it comes to older men dat­ing younger women. These are two suc­cess­ful indi­vid­u­als in their own rights, who hap­pened to find love out­side of the tra­di­tional age range.

What do you think: Will George Lucas’ mar­riage to a younger woman last, or does the large age dif­fer­ence pose a threat to their last­ing union?
