I’m 42 and he’s 35.  We have been off and on for 17 years and have two daughters, ages 13 and 11.  We’ve had our bumps, but as we are tying the knot we may as well call it a success.

My DH is younger than I, and both of my sons are married to women who are older than they.

We are a happy Pride of cougars!

I’m 39 and he’s 30. Never would have imagained I would be marrying a man 9 years younger. My ex husband was 6 years older then me. However he acts much older and I look and act younger so its not an issue.  It’s usually my friends who make cougar comments because they know it annoys me but strangers would never guess we have an age gap.

Im 6 years older! When we get married I wil be 30 and he will be 23…almost 24. When we first met I was heistant because I was 26 and he was 20…seemed so young. He wasnt even on my dating radar. He pursued me and after that first night I just knew he was my lifemate! Age is only a number!!

I’m 41 and my husband is 29. We are soulmates and best friends. We can’t live or breathe without each other’s. If something happens to either one of us, other partner is suffering from same situation (happy or sad). The funniest thing is that million miles away yet we knew that we both need each other same time!

Same habits, choices, behaviors, and personality!

we are made for each other’s!

im happy for u!

I’m 41+ and my husband is 30. We got married 4 months ago, after living together for 1 year.

I’m no stranger to “serious”, long time relationships (I was living with my ex for 8 years before we split up) and I’ve been engaged twice, second time breaking up 3 months before wedding time. But, it was the first time in my life I was not scared or had any of my known issues with commitment, and I did not get cold feet before the wedding.

I was completely calm and happy, felt at ease, like I was doing the most natural thing in the world. Well, actually I did. I was marrying the guy I love and trust. He is a great man and although sometimes I do realize our age gap (from music and movies to life hard learned lessons), I do appreciate him for what he is and for all his efforts to become a better person, SO, and husband.

Can’t imagine my life without him around 🙂

My SO is 3 years younger than me which is not a lot IMO. All of my friends who are in relationships are either born the same year or are younger than their partners.

He’s 15 months younger. I can’t tell any difference at all. He’s following in his dad’s footsteps too – his parents are something like three years apart with his mom being older.

you go girl! My husband is about a year younger than I am. Not much of a age difference but he will forever call me a cradle robber until the day I die. He gets such a kick out of reminding me that he’s younger.

How awesome!!!! My Fiance is 5 yrs younger than me, I’m almost 47 this year, and he just turned 42. I’ve always dated younger. I did date 1 man that was 3 yrs older for a bit, but I just prefer younger. Between that 5 to 7 year younger range.

I am older than DH and both of my sons are younger than their wives. My Mother-In-Law was 10 years older than my Father-In-Law. my GREATGRANDMOTHER was 10 years older than my GGF.

ALL healthy, happy productive marriages!

Forget age, love each other like crazy, GOOD LUCK AND BLESSINGS!
