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

#61

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.

#63

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!!!

#64

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!!

#66

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

#67

Tolerance is important- indifferance is the killer.

#68

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

#69

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.
