Discussing :: Age difference - how much does it matter?


Only a few months between us but he is definitely older than me!!


Don't think it really matters when you are younger, but if you have a big age gap later in life, I think it does matter.


My gorgeous wife is three years my senior, and it dosent matter one little bit. We have been together happily for 20 years and the sex just keeps getting better!!!


I'm 8 years junior to my partner, but we match up in maturity =P

As some people here have said, I think it makes a difference when you are young. When we met and I was just 18, a few friends were worried, but it wasn't long before nobody batted an eyelid. The relative difference in age seems bigger until you are both over a certain age.


I dont think age is a barrier as it depends on maturity and compatibility, 1 month, 1 year or 10 years makes no difference as long as you have you keep your lines of communication up, love each other unconditionally!!


no it shouldn't matter. Although it does depend on the age difference at the time, say a 16 year old going out with a 26 year old yes i have a problem with that. My parents married young mum was 18 and dad was 27 and they are still happily married 40 years later. I just think that you have to be mature enough for the relationship in the beginning


Tolerance is important- indifferance is the killer.


They say you can divide your age in half and add 7 - anything that number and higher is fine.


There is 9 years between me and my husband. We have been married 11 years and together 13 years. I guess as the age difference will start in the coming years as he is 42 and I am 33...... But overall I think it's who you love not their age. I just hope he stays around longer as I have heard men live less.


doesn't make a difference to me my partner is 12 years older and we been together 7 years and have 2 kids
