So my birthday was this weekend and I’m currently in the two weeks of the year that Darling Husband and I are actually the same (numerical) age. You see, Darling Husband is 11.5 months older than me so with that barely under a year age difference, we’re only the same age for a short period of time.
We were talking about this over the weekend and Darling Husband commented that he guessed only about 10-15% of couples are within less than a year of each other in age. We figured a decent number (although certainly not all) HS and college sweethearts could fit that gap but that probably most people who met their SO post-college have a larger age difference.
So I wanted to unscientifically poll the Hive. What is the age difference between you and your SO?

You should do a poll.

@Mrs.KMM: Eight years! Luckily all of our friends fall right in the middle of our age gap, so we hardly notice it unless we’re talking about sitcoms or music.

Fiance is 7 years and 3 months older than I am, perfect age gap for me, I find too much closer in age to me were just not that compatible.

He is one year and 9 days older (yes, my birthday is 9 days after his.. it’s also in December… busy month for us!), so we just barely miss your under one year range.
