Me and my SO are 8 years apart. In the beginning some of his friends would bring it up, but now it’s only ever mentioned when topics talking about the past are discussed. Like how young I was when he started driving, etc. I’m 23 and he’s 31.

My parents are 6 years apart, and I know in the begining of their relathionship is was a bigger deal between my mom’s family. But almost 30 years later no one questions it. It all depends on personality and what works for you, perhaps if he was 6 years younger he wouldnt be the person he is today and ready to spend the rest of his life with you. Try not to sweat it, you are marrying him not everybody else and their opinions.

laurenwilliam:  I don’t think 6 years is bad at all! My Darling Husband is 12 years older than me. If it works it works period.

Me and my OH have a 10 year gap! I wouldn’t worry about 6 years if you are happy and you dont mind it! I’ve always listened to myself as to whether I’m happy with the age gap, no one knows your relationship as well as you!

laurenwilliam:  Me and my Fiance have a 15 year age gap, when I first joined here I had some really nasty comments about it and I have had people asking if he was my dad. It does not bother me because I know that he is the one and I don’t give a toss how old he is (I am 24 next week, he is 38). I view it as it is private and you don’t have to explain youself to anyone, its not their relationship. If they have a problem it is theirs, not yours. I hope you are not getting crap for it, 6 years is not much though, so dont worry – as long as you are happy that is what counts 🙂

My fiance is 6 years YOUNGER than me (I am about to be 32 and he is about to be 26). I NEVER thought I would ever date, let alone marry, a younger guy. I knew I liked him as soon as I met him but I was soooo hung up on our age difference. Some people (lovingly) teased me about it for a little while. I knew pretty quickly though that I was falling in love with him. I made a decision to stop thinking about it, since he has never cared about it one bit. Now I never think about it anymore. I feel like the happiest girl in the world and our ages seem really insignificant in the big picture.

I’m 5 1/2 years older than my SO and while it doesn’t bother me, it really weirds my mom out. My reasoning is just that he makes me happy and we have the important things in common and that’s what matters.

As you get older the gap wouldn’t matter as much. My fiance is 5 years older than me but I still feel like I’m more mature. haha.

My Fi and I are also six to seven years apart, and nobody ever blinks an eye at us. We are also about the same ages–25 and 31. I’m sorry people give you such a hard time! They don’t know what they are missing!

my fiancé and I have 16 years of age gap. trust me, initial part I had my doubts, but love does conquer all. despite the ups and downs, differences and also being like-minded, you just have to be sure of your love towards him and his love towards you. you needa have faith. do not let others point of view make you doubt your relationship with the love of your life. YOU are gonna spend the rest of your life with him, not the rest. as long as you’re happy, nothing really matters. your happiness lies in your own hands. go grab it and don’t let go for the sake of others’ opinions cos’ they don’t matter. it shouldn’t. 🙂 

 

I’m lucky I don’t get people questioning me and stuff but my mom was kinda worried initially but seeing how he treats me and my family, she’s reassured he’s the one for me. my friends are very supportive and they totally understand. you just can’t defy love and you can’t force the chemistry either. if people do question you of the age gap, just tell them, “does it really matter? he makes me happy and we love each other, age is nothing but a number.” you can’t put an explanation on that. or just smile and walk away. don’t let them affect you!! you deserve all the happiness in the world, everybody does!! xx

laurenwilliam:  6 years here too! 28 and 34. We met 5 years ago.  Pop culture differences are interesting,  but we are a great trivia pair because of it!  He thinks it is so funny.
