My Fiance is 6 years my senior…we are so similar and so in love but some people get so stuck on the age gap!! It never bother me too muched but now that we are offically engaged I have noticed an increase in people asking about our age difference. Has anyone had anything like this happen? How did you deal with some of the questioning?

I do not think that 6 years is really a big gap at all. I wouldn’t let it bother me. Congrats on your engagement!

I think its depends on how old you are. If you are in your teens and dating someone who is in their mid twenties the age gap could be more so apparent. But later on in life 6 years difference is nothing.

laurenwilliam: If you’re under 21, then 6 years might seem like a big gap to outsiders – but obviously all that matters is your happiness. If people say something rude, just say “when I’m 40 and he’s 46 it won’t matter”.

6 years is nothing, unless you’re very young (like a 14 year old and a 20 year old, ew).
My husband is 10 years older than me, and no one cares, not even my parents. We met when I was 22 and he was 32, we’re now 26 and 36.

laurenwilliam: Yeah six years isn’t a big gap, unless you’re quite young, which I’m thinking you must be if you’re getting this many comments. Darling Husband is 5 years older than me and nobody has said a thing about it, but we met when I was 24 and he was 29. When you’re older it really doesn’t matter.

SithLady: I’m 26 so my Fiance is 32 and we honestly both act like kids when we are together so I tihnk i’m just going to ignore the questions and celebrate our love.

Six years is nothing! As long as you’re comfortable with your fiance and your relationship, I’d just ignore the people who give you a side-eye and just smile at people who want to stick their noses into your business. It’ll get better as you get older.
For the record, my husband and I are 8 1/2 years apart. Luckily, we’ve never had anyone outright comment on it, but even if someone did, we wouldn’t care. Not their relationship, not their problem! 🙂

laurenwilliam: You totally should! 26 and 32 isn’t that bad. If it works for you, then it works. People who question it don’t even deserve a reply.

6 years is nothing at all! My hubby & I are 16 1/2 years apart, to the day! If he makes you happy & you make him happy, ignore the comments. I’ve gotten a few here & there, but I just ignore them. I love him & he loves me! 🙂

Six years is nothing…I know couples who are like 13 years apart. We are 4 years apart, it’s not that serious

laurenwilliam: One of my good friends is 27 and her long term SO is 33 so this doesn’t seem like a huge gap to me. Sorry you’re getting crap from people!
