Ashi:- Is an adult woman, probably around 20 years old- Jack called her a “woman”, not “a girl”- She is mature beyond teenage years- If she were a minor she definitely wouldn’t have gotten all the sexy/nude scenes she did last episode- She can make her own decisions as an adult- Jack helped her find her true self and gave her life a meaningful purpose besides simply being an expendable killing machine- She obviously cares about Jack Jack:- Is technically 75 years old, (thousands of years old if you want to get more technical about it), but neither his physical age nor his psychological age represent a 75 year old- He is still physically 25 years old, just with more emotional baggage (and as far as mental age goes, mind and body are not completely separate.
His brain would still represent that of a 25 year old, still young and developing)- By the logic of the “age gap” which puts Jack at 75 years old, who tf can he date acceptably then without a massive age gap since he’s an “old man”? That’s not fair to the character - He was able to forgive Ashi and does seem to care about her- It IS possible to ship Ashi with the 2001-2004 version of Jack, ya know- We’ve had evidence that in the presence of Ashi, Jack’s hallucinations become far less aggressive (blue Jack in episode 3 vs in episode 4), or disappear entirely, so she’s positively affecting his mental health- So much so that she is able to convince Jack out of committing suicide after 50 years of temptation Shipping Jashi in General:- It has become clear now that Ashi is an adult woman- Jack and Ashi have obvious chemistry- Both have risked their lives protecting each other- They have saved each other’s lives- They are a benefit to each other’s mental health- There is no evidence that Jack is Ashi’s father- There is no evidence of an abusive relationship (They were enemies in the beginning, and yes, Jack killed her sisters, but it was in self-defense, and Ashi understands that.)- However you choose to see the age gap is arbitrary, not factual - Compared to many other ships, like those shipping a young girl with a hundred-year-old vampire or whatever, or shipping Jack with a literal ancient demon, Aku, Jashi is a super unproblematic ship Conclusion: Jashi shippers have a very strong base for their ship that has proven to be mutually beneficial and pure.
Love can be fickle, and we don’t always fall for the right people.
Sometimes a significant age gap makes a relationship impossible.
Same-sex couples sometimes feature a significant age gap as well.Although comedians joke about these relationships, a significant age difference doesn’t make a relationship any less real or meaningful, though it may create some challenges that don’t exist when romantic partners are close in age.Navigating the social ramifications of your relationship while struggling with generation gaps can be tough, but a significant age difference can give you the chance to consider new perspectives and appreciate the offerings of a different generation.These celebrities didn't let a "few" years get in the way of love, and maybe that's the key to a good relationship.Because between some of our favourite A-listers, 10 years of an age gap seems to be norm.No matter how real your feelings are, getting involved with someone under the age of 18 can lead to serious legal trouble.Even if you’re legally in the clear, a large age difference can undermine the long-term viability of your relationship.Fortunately, that’s changing as more older-woman and younger-man couplings make headlines.Actress Robin Wright, 47, is engaged to fellow actor Ben Foster, 33.The age gaps spanned anywhere from 10 to 14 years, with women in their late 40s and early 50s enjoying relationships and/or marriage with men in their late 20s or 30s. Couples in this situation had to address the fertility concern head-on, with some choosing to take the leap relatively quickly while others took a pass.And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.
