Hey 20-something bees! I was wondering if you are marrying a man younger than you?! I just turned 25 and my FI is 22. We are 2.5 years apart (counting half years just like a 5 year old baha). I haven’t heard any bees talk about their younger FI’s much. Especially if they’re in their 20s.
Everyone always says that in your 20s you are still growing, changing, etc. I believe that of course! But they also say that men in thei 20s (particularly under 25) are immature. Well thanks but no thanks… my FI is just fine! He is mature and working hard full-time, as well as going to school full-time at night. Yea, he still loves to go play video games, and yea he has some immature friends. But I love him so much! I also enjoy his friends 🙂
Do any of you bees have a similar experience?

I adore my younger FI and his immature friends as well! FI is 23 and I am 26. He looks 28 and has more mature viewpoints than I do (on most topics). I generally go for men older than I, but Patty from Millionaire Matchmakers says that if you are willing to date someone older, then you should be willing to date someone younger. I am so happy that I took her advice 2 years ago!! I am the happiest that I’ve ever been!:)

FI is about a month younger than I, does that count?

My FI is ten months younger than I am. I always thought I’d end up with an older man, so I think it’s kind of funny. He’s very mature and well-balanced. The number of years you’ve been alive doesn’t determine everything!

My SO is a couple months younger than I am, so he’s younger but not by much! Do you guys get the “craddle robber” comments as much as I do?

I’m 28 and my husband is 25; there’s 2 years and 10 months separating us. But I’m youthful and he’s mature and we average each other out! : )

Im 26 about to be 27 in june and he is 25 (just turned 25 in january of this year) he was born in 86 me in 84 so its about a year and a half difference. not too much but like some pp have stated about thier SO’s, he is very mature and works hard and sometimes seems like he is some years older than I am. I call him “old man” because of some of his ways. They just dont fit a 25 yr old in my mind lol but those things are also some of the reasons I love him so much

Technically, yes. Our birthdays are 1 month and 14 days apart.. we joke I’m the older woman, even though we both graduated the same year in high school…

Yes, he’s younger…by about 9 months.

I’m 28 (will be 29 in a month) and my hubby to be is 27. I don’t care that he’s younger! He is more mature than some of the older guys I dated in the past and he’s my best friend!!!

I’m 28 and my FI turns 25 next month, there’s 3 1/2 years between us. My last BF before him was 5 1/2 years older than me and not at all close to be as mature as my FI.
The age difference doesn’t bother either of us. Plus we get to tease each other about me being the old lady and him being the baby. 🙂
