Genevieve & Jack's ages on the marriage certificate were laughable. First off, Cane should now be around 33. So unless Genevieve was pregnant while she herself was in the womb, then this must be an inside joke. And I'm sorry, but there's no way Jack could ever pass for 40-nothing.
I've always wondered: exactly what are the ages of these characters? They've been SORASed and de-SORASed so often, I've lost track. But I use Jack as a guide because we know he served in Vietnam. Conscription/drafting ended in 1973, so Jack would have served before then--1971 to 1972, approximately. And I'll assume he got a college deferment before being called to service, so 1971 - 22 = 1949 as Jack's possible birth year. He's around 63 with the forgotten son Keemo being around 40.
Jack used to be at least a decade older than Ashley, with her being 2-3 years older than Traci. So Ashley is around 53 and Traci is 50 in my mind. If Colleen were alive, she would be 27, I guess. They SORASed her a bit much, but it would have evened out by now if she were still on the show.
Abby's age is all messed up, because Ashley had been out of college and in the work force for years before having Abby. Abby is about 27, but really? Considering that Ashley was supposed to be grasping at one of her last possible chances of having a baby, at least at that time? Abby would be no more than a senior in high school, tops, 17/18 years old.
Jill was originally born in September 1954, but they bumped up her age to accommodate Phillip III/Cane being in their early 40s and it's always been said that Jill was 20 when she had Phillip. So she's 61/62. Genevieve is around 60, too. She can't be younger, or how do you explain that she has a 40-year-old son?
Billy is around 32, just taking a guess.
That would make Tucker 61/62, too.
Katherine is 83, same as JC.
Victoria has to be nearly 40. Nicholas/Sharon have a grown son in Noah and they were out of high school when he was born, but still young. If Noah is 19-21, Nicholas and Sharon are around 38. That's kind of pushing it, but they could have had Noah at 19 and be almost on mark. Adam is around 32, factoring in college/MBA + working on Wall Street + being in GC for a few years now.
Nikki was fully grown when she had Victoria--22/23, I'm guessing? So she's around 62/63, same as Jack. Paul would be about that age, too. Victor is AT LEAST 12-15 years older than Nikki. I'll say he's 75.
I don't know if they've ever addressed Neil's age. But again, he arrived in GC fully grown with MBA in hand and was part of Jabot's junior executive program. Say he was 25 when he arrived in town in 1991. 25+21 =47. That seems right. Lily was actually born in 1994, and should be 18 but was SORASed to 14 in 2002. CK is 24 IRL, but it seems that Lily should be older than that, especially since they have her married to a man who's at least 40. So is Cane 15/16 years Lily's senior? Guess so. Devon is 24/25.
Phyllis has to be 50. Having a son in his mid 20s throws things off a bit. But no way is she the same age as Nicholas and Sharon.
Lauren is 50, same as Traci. Michael is around the same age. Gloria is in her early 70s. Kevin should be older, because while there's some decent space between him and Michael, it's not 18 years. I would say Kevin should be 40. Chloe is about 30.
That's the best I can come up with. They've got to stop messing with the characters' ages sooner or later. :-/
