Sugar Dating is perceived as controversial, but apparently only when it is a lifestyle chosen by ordinary people. But what happens when this lifestyle is adopted by some of the most powerful people in the world? Is it then suddenly perfectly normal?

Why is Sugar Dating seen as such a controversial concept when many influential people, who are supposed to be our role-models and daily aspirations, engage in these type of modern and evolving relationships? Why is an ordinary Sugar Baby or Sugar Daddy blamed for it? The absolute goal of any Sugar Baby is to find someone powerful and successful and if possible to fund their entire existence. Take a moment and go through the facts below. All of these historical couples are a clear example of early Sugar Dating relationships. It seemed like Sugar Dating was socially accepted for centuries, but is nowadays seen as a tabu.

Having a look at some historical figures, the very first example that came in mind are the 22nd as well as 24th president of the United States of America. President Cleveland and his 27 year younger wife Frances Clara Folsom got married on the 2nd of June in 1889 at the White House. Frances was only 21 years old when she became the First Lady and that makes her the youngest First Lady of America in US history. And not to mention Lady Diana Spencer with the age difference of 13 years from Prince Charles.
