I’m glad it works for you. We’re only eight months apart. My husband’s grandparents were 20 years apart. My dad’s parents were eight years apart.

We didn’t start out rough but I wanted to chime in that my dad is 19 years older than my mom and they have been married for almost 39 years.

Cute. My dad and my fiance get along well enough. Dad doesn’t socialize very much to be honest. I thought my dad was gonna kill Fiance when I asked to date him. Maybe I should explain that I was only 17 (matter of fact I’d turned 17 2months before) and my fiance was 21 (turned 22 2months after we went on our first date), plus my dad had just returned from overseas with the army.There is exactly 4yrs 7months and 13 days between us. I adore the age difference because we connected so much better from the begining. I was never one for drama which was what I was seeing from my high school friends. and I really did want something more then just a boyfriend for a month or two. I wanted a man who would respect me and wouldn’t create drama in my life. We quickly became best friends and started dating soon after.

It was interesting getting used to dating someone over 21 when I was below 18. Fiance drank before we got together, but stopped almost all together so that I wouldn’t feel uncomfortable (even though he’d never drink in front of me). We went through many diffrent struggles because of our height differences (I’m below 5ft and he’s above 6ft) more so then because of our age. Like one of his friends picked on me, Fiance set him straight though. And people give us dirty stares because I look about 15.

The Fiance and I are only 10 days apart! My parents are 6 years apart though… and I actually think that’s more normal?

@jgoulart that is really cool that your family and friends are so supportive now πŸ™‚ I know of many couples with age differences similar to yours and they are wonderful together as well!

I am almost 9 years older than my husband and was a single parent when we met so I pretty much tried to resist him at first but after we went out on our first date we were inseparable. We have been very happily married over 2 years now and have a wonderful little boy. I will say that him being so much younger than me concerned some family at first but they love him now and they’ve stopped calling me a cradle robber, lol.

For a long time I would only date men who were older than me, but then I met my Fiance who is 3 years younger. πŸ™‚
