my fi is 6 years younger than me.  when we met in 2009, he was 36 and i was 42.  don’t really notice an age difference.  i thought that his mom would have an issue given that i have an adult son only 12 yrs younger than her son but she doesn’t at all.  she loves my son and i think she feels comfort knowing that i will be good to her son.

I’m newly turned 53 and Fiance will be a month away from 38 when we marry in July. It’s a 15-15.5 yr difference. He has been such a gift in my life! I met him while separated and extricating myself froma  25 yr long marriage which involved a LOT of emotional abuse. I thought I was totally broken – and I always thought I was so strong! He has changed my life, and my daughter’s life. We’ve been together 3.5 years and we both knew from the start we’d be together permanently. He’s never been married. Sometimes we laugh about the things that are age-related differences, like I can’t believe I’m with a man who was born after the moon landing, lol. I never feel anything but total love, support and acceptance from him. I used to joke that he thinks I walk on water and I feel the same way about him. As he always said: Age is only a measure of your trips around the sun – not a measure of who you really are.

I’m marring a younger man, I’m 30 and he is 25. He was 24 when he proposed and had been dating for a year. Age means nothing ๐Ÿ™‚

My Fiance is 2 years younger. Most of the men that I’ve dated have been slightly younger than me. I don’t even think about it. I know many marriages where the woman is 7-10 years older than the man.

My fiance and I are 4 years apart, me older.  You wouldn’t even know he was younger if you met us face to face, he is so down to earth and mature but still likes to have fun, and I’m a lot more mature now than I was at his age so it all works out.  I always say God made me born first so that I had more time to mature since I would need it lol ๐Ÿ™‚

I am marrying a much younger man and he truly is the love of my life. I turned 43 in March and he turned 30 in February,so we have about a 13 year age difference. We’ve lived together for almost five years now and we always joke that the only reason I got married the first time was because I had to bide my time while he grew up.

I can count on one hand the fights/big arguments we’ve had over the years and even those weren’t that bad. Not only is he great to my kids(ages 24, 19, and 14), but his family treats us all as if we’d been a part of their family forever. I could not have wished for a better man and family to marry into.

 

By the way, he is VERY hot. When talking to my friends, I always refer to him as SuperFine. AND, even though I’ve lost the weight now, he loved me just as much when I got fat.

I am going to be 40 in may and Fiance will be 30 in June.  Like you been together for 4 years and honestly, I think and say that my ex was just a step in for him until i met him.  He is my soul mate, my heart and love.  We are too much alike but makes it even better.

My friend from school (now 40) married  a guy we believe about 17 years younger than her.  They live in Australia and they seem very very happy with each other.
