Man asks if he's wrong to 'grill' niece's older boyfriend

Age gap love isn't always insidious. There are definitely times when an older man or woman genuinely cares for their younger partner in a way that's not peppered with manipulation or power imbalances.

Nonetheless, it's still reasonable to feel suspicious when a man is dating a woman half his age who just entered adulthood. There is a pretty grim historical track record of older men preying on young women in relationships and while it doesn't apply across the board, it's still a trend.

With this in mind, a concerned uncle on the Am I The A*shole subreddit asked the internet if he was wrong for grilling his niece's much older boyfriend.

AITA for asking a 47 year old man who is dating my 22 year old niece some pointed questions that made him “uncomfortable”?

When OP's wife asked if their 22-year-old niece could come to visit, he immediately said yes.

He's known her since she was a 4-years-old, and met her briefly before her dad walked out.

Using a throwaway. Some context; I live in CA, and my wife’s niece wanted to come visit us for a few weeks. She’s 22, I’ve known her since she was 4. Her dad walked out on her family when she was 8. She’s very sheltered by her mother. Anyway, I told my wife it was fine with me if she visits. She’s a good kid, and our 5 year old son loves his cousin and really wanted to see her.
