She is 157 years old! Holy cougars Batman!
Having an infinite lifespan certainly kills the "half your age+7" rule. I wonder what is considered generally acceptable by now. Diana objected to this gap, but her societal norms aren't necessary the same as the rest of Bubbleopolis. I seem to recall that Alyss was concerned that Eithine was hooking up with someone so much younger than her as well.

I remember it being the other way around, so much older, as in Murphy.
In any case, I read it as simply "not good enough for my friend/relative", by any available excuse.
