People have been focusing quite a bit on the age difference between Dakota and Chris (she's 28 and he's 40), but last time we checked 12 years isn't that massive of a difference between two adults. And also, perhaps everyone should mind their own business, ahem.

To quote Papa Johnson, she can handle herself.
