- Wedding: July 2019
My SO is 8 years older than me. We met when we were 28 and 36 and are now 31 and 39. We really don’t notice the age difference much, and neither does anyone else. Once in a while, one of us will make a reference to something from when we were growing up (a TV show, a toy, a band, etc.) and the other one will have no clue what it is. We’re both physically fit and take care of ourselves, so he looks closer to 27-30. He makes substantially more money that I do, but that’s par for the course given the fields we each work in. I guess the biggest thing is the fact that he has a 13 year old son, so when it gets brough up in conversation and people don’t realize I’m not his mom, I get some very amusing reactions lol.
