Well established pattern of older males in pursuit of much younger women. Augustine (long before he was Saint Augustine, or even Augustine of Hippo) dismissed his mistress of some twenty years to get engaged to a girl whose family had political connections… But the family said wait a year until marriage, she was only 13. Augustine was convinced that sex was the only thing people had on their minds. He was telling us more about himself than the condition of humanity.
