Question about United States

Hi guys! I want to ask you about the usage of the word “boyfriend”. I know what it means obviously:) But I faced a situation in which I'm not sure if it can be used. My friend is dating a man who is much older than her, in his 40s, so he is not a boy definitely - he is a grown-up man. And I wanted to know if I could say “her boyfriend” about him. ...And by the way, in general, are these terms “boyfriend”, “girlfriend” applicable to people who are, let’s say, over 40...50?
This may be a stupid question, but I really have cognitive dissonance lol.
