Well said you. They’re obv coming from a place of concern, ultimately, but you’re old enough to know what you’re doing lol !!

Oh, for heaven’s sake!  It’s not like he is under age.

I am 56.  My wife is 15 years younger than me.  However, we’ve been together for over 9 years, and love each other.  I figure that everyone but the two of us can just stay out of that issue!

I’m so glad you’re feeling better!   Stay strong!  You love and relationship should eventually quiet the nay-sayers.

Next time someone ask, counter (as sweetly as you can) with “Why do you ask?”. It’s really nobody’s business, and really, someone should “nicely” tell them so. You are a grown woman, he is a grown man…it’s up to you and nobody else.

BTW, I had a friend (actually former boss) who is 43 and his wife to be is 59 (though you would never in a million years guess by looking at them that there was a difference). They both lost a couple of friends who just didn’t understand. I say those friends were not really friends! They ahve been together for over 10 years.

Oh, hon, put that worry right out of your mind! It’s hard enough to find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, without factoring age into it! I’m 47 and my groom is 38, and we couldn’t be happier. We feel and act (and most people say we look) the same age, we have the same dreams and values, and no one else’s judgment could possibly affect our decision to be together. Don’t you let anyone put a damper on the fact that you’ve found the love of your life!
