Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have a ten year age difference between them, but it didn’t matter that much when they both played love interests on The Vampire Diaries. However, it’s definitely starting to matter now that they’ve both gone their separate ways in their professional careers. Ian has more or less been kicked off the Vampire Diaries, and Nina is still contracted to at least another year on the show.
What does that mean for the couple’s on-again/off-again relationship? Well, our sources tell us that age is playing a factor for the first time ever in their coupling. Apparently, Nina and Ian had been back on for a few months, but ended up fighting over the future of their relationship – much the same way they fought during their first breakup.
Ian is 35 years old, and he wants to settle down, start a family, and have children. Nina, on the other hand, is only 25 years old and still has her entire career laid out in front of her. So even if her mother wants her to settle down, there’s no way she’s going to. She’s at the place in her life where all she wants to do is go crazy, party a lot, spend time with her friends, travel, and hook up with a bunch of hot dudes. And as a major TV star and gorgeous to boot, she’s in a prime position to enjoy her status.
Of course, Ian hasn’t necessarily taken the news well, but what does he expect? When he was sowing his oats and going crazy in his twenties, Nina was still finishing high school. Shouldn’t she be given the freedom to let loose and have fun in her twenties as well?
