  • Wedding: October 2016

I was 32 when we met and there is a 17 year age gap.  I thought he was a nice guy and we’d be friends, but I couldn’t have guessed how much we’d have in common or how much fun we have together.   When we get married this October we will have been together for 3 years.

I was 26 and he was 31. Its roughly a 5 year age gap. When I was younger, that mattered to me, but I feel we are the same age maturity wise, so I’m fine with the gap. Sometimes I forget that he’s now 33. He seems younger to me.

Met him when I was 15, he was 18 and we started dating when I was 16 (nearly 17). Happily married for 10 years this September. ๐Ÿ™‚

We met when we were both 23. Essentially no age gap (5 months). We were 24 when we became a couple and will be 28 when we get married this fall.

We met a month before I turned 22. He was 38. We have a 16 year gap.

Im not sure what you mean by “what was it like”…or in what context.

Sugar Plum.x:  I was 20 and he was 32, he is 12 years older than me. Honestly it never really was an issue for us at all. We both knew what we wanted and were on the same page on most things. like any other relationship it took some work for certain things but nothing related to our age gap, just daily life stuff of a new relationship.

When we met we were 14, started dating when we were 16 (almost 17). I am older than him by 2 months but everyone thinks hes substantially older than me because he’s soooo tall. It’s awesome that we are the same age because we basically get to hit all the age milestones at the same time (since we started dating so young). We will be 22 and 21 when we get married next year.

We met thru a gig (we’re both musicians). We were both married to other people at the time and were just acquaintances. Ffwd 6 years and we’re both divorced, living in the same town. We hit it off right away and are getting engaged soon (that was 3 years ago). We are 39 (me) and 51 (him). I guess I was 31nhe 43 when we met? Something like that. But 36/48 when we became an “item”

23 year gap…

I was 27 when I met him on a company trip to establish a new location. He doesnt work for the same company, just happened to be grabbing a bite in the bar of the hotel. We hit it off.. Got engaged 90 days later on a family outing with my kids. We knew if we wanted to serious, long term long distance just wouldnt work. He lives in GA, I live in central FL. I am moving there when school gets out in June. We have a “planned” elopement scheduled for September 2016. I am really opposed to living together outside of marriage, but I am being flexible due to logistics…
