I’ll be 24 when we get married and he’ll be 35. He was initially unsure about our age difference but according to him I’m far more mature than my years. πŸ™‚ a lot of his friends are shocked to hear how much younger I am, but I’m out of the party party party stage while he’s not quite ready to accept being in his mid-30s– we meet partway! The only big concern is that I want to start having children sooner than later on account of his age.

Fiance is 28 and I am 23 (I was 19 & he was 23 when we started dating). I tease him about his age, but it’s really not at all noticeable πŸ™‚

I just turned 29 and he just turned 40, but nobody ever thinks either of us are really our age. We both get carded every time we go out to a bar we’ve never been to and they always look at us and say “really???”

While we aren’t engaged yet I’m hoping it’ll be next year we do have a age difference.  His 30 and I am 24 so six years.  We met when I was 20 and he was 25 about to be 26.  He wants kids like asap and I juat want to wait a year a two and enjoy marriage life first.  As of late though I have been having baby fever but I’m not acting on it lol.  Although age isn’t really a factor with us.  Here is us together:

3 years isn’t too much of an age gap now that I’m 19 and he is 22, but when we started dating at 15 and 18, it was a big deal. 23 and 41 (even though he honestly doesn’t look it!) seems like a huge difference now, but as you grow older together that gap will seem to shrink. When he is 65 and you are 47, you won’t even notice it anymore. All that matters is that you are both happy and are willing to commit too eachother and make eachother happy. When you are in a equally loving and caring relationship, what else matters? πŸ˜€

We’re not married yet – been dating almost 2 years and have known each other for 5. He’s 13 years older than me. I’m 20 and he’s 33. But we just fit so perfectly. I’ve never felt my age and have always gotten along better with people older than me. I’ve never actually dated anyone my age because I’ve never found them appealing.

Here we are at Christmas at his parents’ house for dinner and presents πŸ™‚

My Fiance is only 7 months older than me, but we both like being the same age. I feel like we have a lot in common and are looking forward to growing old together.

I married an “older man” in October! He’s just about to turn 29 and I’m 21. I don’t really think about the age difference at all. I’ve always been told I’m an old soul, and he seems young for his age. 

Here we are on our wedding day:

we are only  2 yrs apart but he has been on his own for a long time (5 yrs already) so he is at a totally different point in his life, but we balance eachother out hes calculated and I am go with the flow so he keeps me grounded and I help give him some life πŸ™‚
