Fiance and I are less than a year apart.

Before Fiance, I dated a guy who was about 5 years older, and I was far more mature.  When we stopped dating for good 4 or 5 years ago, he was 27, and acted like a college freshman.  I found out a few months ago that he got married!  I feel bad for his wife! (but who knows, maybe he finally grew up)

So anyway, I’d agree that age is just a number (as long as you aren’t, say, a 16 year old dating a 30 year old or something!)  🙂

My Fiance is 8 years older. I am 25, he is 33. We only notice when we talk about childhood and I don’t know a lot of the shows he watched and music he listened to. Really though, he can party harder than me any day. He said that someday he will be taking care of me.

We’re almost exactly 10 years apart. Our birthdays are both in the middle of June.

When a song comes on the radio he’ll say “I bought this album my senior year of college” and I’ll say “I got it for Christmas in 8th grade” – it’s pretty funny.

My husband and I are 22 years apart in age. I’m 22 and he’s 45. I was 21 and he was 44 when we first met. I met him online and fell in love with him right away! Check out my profile to see a pic of us!  My parents were very shocked when they found out about my husband. Age for us has never been a big deal. We’ve just focused on being in love and making the most of our marriage. I don’t think anyone should not marry or even date someone b/c of age. Just b/c he’s older doesn’t mean he’s a BAD person. I am so glad I went with a more mature person for a husband. I had dated guys my own age and they were just into stupid stuff like going out and getting drunk. Not my husband! We spend A LOT of time together and we love it!

OMG it is so good to read these bees. My husband is 13 yrs older than me thu you can never tell the age difference in person but ppl sometimes give me SUCH a hard time i have learned to say “you do not know us” or something like that OR just ignore it. My parents have 12 yrs in between them but that is not Y they do not get along it is in the personality and the connection you make with the other person not the age difference!!

I am 26 and my fiance is 39.  I never notice or think about the age difference.  He is still a kid at heart and I don’t think that will ever change.

I don’t have much of an age difference in my relationship, we are a year apart. But my best friend is currently dating someone who is 45 and she is 24. I often tease her by saying, “He isn’t robbing the cradle, you’re robbing the grave!” haha

I didn’t read the other posts, but I do agree with JustLikeHeaven, in saying that the two of you don’t appear to have that age difference, so in my opinion it really is just a number! I’m not marrying an older man, but he is marrying an older woman by about 5 years. I was born in July of 1983 and he was born in October of 1988. We are happy and in love, and the only grief we ever received about it was from his friend Shon asking if I was “robbing the cradle”, lol. He got hell for that remark, and we don’t really appear to have a huge age difference either.

My Fiance is 8.5 years older than I am, but it doesn’t seem like it at all in terms of looks OR maturity level!
