I think it depends on what the actual age difference is. Is he a legal adult? Is he mature enough that you have things in common and share the same values and goals – both short and long term? If so, then I don’t see a big problem with it.

As long as you’re both adults, it’s all fine! I’m older than my FI, sister is older than her DH, it’s not a big deal when you’re both mature adults.

One of my friends married someone 20 years older than himself when he was in his early 20’s. he went through a lot of judgement but my opinoon is if I was in that situation I would want people to be happy for me 🙂 so I supported them. They now have a gorgeous baby

Its fine as long as he is legal. My FI is a few years younger than me. And we met approximately 4 years ago. I had slight issues at first but he was mature for his age and no one in my family knew he was younger until I told them.

As long as he is legal, it’s fine if he feels the same way.

As long as you are both responsible adults it doesn’t matter what the age difference is or who is older.

I am 3 years older than my FI and couldn’t care less…why would I?

As well we have a couple that we are friends with she is 20 years older than he is. They absolutely love and adore each other.

@anna_met:  it all depends on your maturity level (and if he is legal age).  if the two of you are compatible, that’s all that matters.

i am 6 years older than my dh and he looks a lot younger than his age at times.  luckily, i don’t look my age either.  i don’t really care what other people think. 

how old are you, op?  how does your bf feel about the age difference?
