Haha, there’s about a year and a half between me and my FH, I’m older.

i guess he is really “that much older”… Fiance is 10 1/2 years older than I. I’m 25, he’s 36.

We have 16 years between us, I’m 28, FH just turned 44. It’s not a big deal to us, it’s just the way it happens to be ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband is 7 years and 6 days older than me. People outside our circle think there is a bigger age difference because he looks older than his age and I look younger than my age.

I think our age difference is perfect for us.

My Fiance is 3 years older than I am. It makes a little bit of a difference, because we’re still pretty young. Like he graduated college and got a full time job before I finished. But we’ve done pretty well at growing together.


I don’t see 6 years as a huge difference either though.

SO is eight years older (21/29). I notice an age gap between me and his friends, but I’ve completely forgotten about it between the two of us! It weirded my friends out at first, but everyone is used to the idea at this point. My family was always supportive.

Sometimes it will be strange, like when the snowstorm hit this past weekend. We were talking about the last big blizzard in 1996, and he pauses. “Wait…you were eight years old then. And I was in high school! *laughs*”

Another great quote. His friend said to him “If you had found the right girl the first time, you could have kids by now!”

And MinMan responded, “If I had found the right girl the first time, I would be in jail!”


But aside from some social differences and him having his career in order, we were lucky enough to meet when we were both at similar points in our lives. One of the perks of being that much younger is I’ll always seem youthful and sprightly! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m ten years older than my fiance and it truly just doesn’t feel like it.  When I first met him I had a few other guys around his age that asked me out but they seemed sooo young, he’s different.  My ten year relationship was with my high school sweetheart so we were only a month apart but then I started dating my daughter’s dad who is fifteen years older than I am so I’m all over the place with age!
