He’s 4 years older than me, but because our lifestyles are so similar, I don’t think an age difference is really discernible. We’re friends with couples with much wider age gaps and it works out just fine. I don’t see a problem with age differences once both parties are consenting adults.

He is 2 years younger than me.  Which was weird for me at first, even though it’s just 2 years, but he is almost the same age as my brother.  Anyway, obviously I let it go, and it’s been great!

My Fiance is 8 years and 10 months older than me.  Right now he is 34 and I am 25.  He looks very young and we met as freshmen in college (he was a returning student) but I thought he was my age!  I think it is perfect for us because he has gone through a lot of things before than I am going through the first time now (buying a car, finding the right job, etc.).  It is nice to be with someone with life experience so we aren’t both freaking out at the same time!

My fiance and I are 16 years apart.  I just turned 25 and he just turned 41.  Our little joke is bringing up that he got his driver’s license 25 days before I was born.

It’s kind of a weird dynamic, as far as our families go, because he has two kids: one is 5, but the other is turning 20 this month.  So I’m about 5 years older than my future step-daughter.  What takes it to a whole new level is that his brother is my age, and his daughter’s boyfriend is 28 — older than me!

When I first met him, I had no idea how old he was — he doesn’t look 41 (or, he didn’t look 39 when I met him.)  I’ve always acted older than my age, and I don’t get along with guys my age, so it’s really ideal.  Plus, I like that he has his life together and has had life experiences along the way.  My parents have never had a problem with it, and my guy’s mom loves me.  (His dad thinks I’m a young hussy, but he’s the only one that has issue with it.)

My Fiance is 1 year and 1 month older than I am.  But, my mother’s husband is 18 years younger than she is (therefore only 3 years older than I am) and while it took some getting used to, my whole family loves them together!

We are 15 years apart.  Aside from the initial surprise of it, no one in either family seems to worry about it at all.

Also, my family wouldn’t really be able to say a whole lot, since my uncle is 18 years older than my aunt, and they’ve been married for 30 years or so. . .

My Fiance is 11 years older than me.. which I think would have been less relevant if we were younger, but I’ll be 30 when we marry and he is 41. My parents have had the hardest time adjusting to it, but they trust that I know what I’m doing and that I’ve picked the best man for me, no matter what the age. I think it helps that he looks much younger than he is as well.

Some of you Bees have great stories!  My FH and I are 10 and a half years apart (he’ll be 31 this December, and I’ll be 21 next July).  I know I’m young and all, but I grew up really fast, and I feel a lot older than 20.  While all of you have wonderful stories of how supportive your families are…mine, unfortunately is not that way.  I was disowned this past September because I went to visit Mr. Dizzy’s family with him.  My mother also hates the fact that he’s a combat veteran (she seems to think he’s going to kill me?  She’s weird).  But alas, if so many of you have age gaps, and your families have been supportive, hopefully mine will come around, and find it in their hearts to accept my relationship and actually come to the wedding

My sweetie is 3 years older than me, right in my perfect age range.LOL. I always wanted to marry someone 3 to 5 yrs older than me for soem strange reason.

 I dated a man 10yrs older than me before my sweetie and before him, one that was 16yrs older. I always liked older men. My mom didn’t like the one 16yrs older, because he was 4yrs younger than her!LOL

My husband and I are 18 years apart (I’m 26, and he’s 44). It didn’t seem unnatural for us to get together, although he’s an exception, not the rule – I hadn’t dated much older men prior to our relationship. For the most part, it’s a non-issue, and has never been a problem with our family and friends. In other ways we’re a bit off balance (finances in particular, since he’s had more time to earn and save, but also in that he’s incredibly accomplished in the same profession that I’m training for – it’s intimidating sometimes).

One of the unexpected pleasures of being with my husband is that I never have to remind him of what needs to be done or mother him or get frustrated with his lack of maturity. I’ve had boyfriends in the past that were practically like little kids in some ways! So that was a huge relief for me. And there are other things he’s really good at, too… let’s just say experience has its benefits. ๐Ÿ˜‰
