AyJayne:  This made me laugh! My fI does the same thing, he’ll talk about a really old movie or tv show, and I’ll be like who? lol

AyJayne:  sounds like my Fiance and I. He brings up some band and I sometimes have no clue what he is talking about. And we just laugh it off.

and I think the same thing about my relationship, our age difference creates a good balance. It just works.

Absolutely! Haha… Sometimes after he explains what he’s going on about, I’ll come back and tease him with the, “Ohhh, from before I was booorn.” I can’t say he “loves” that, but all in good fun

AyJayne:  That’s funny. I will have to remember that one. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 

It’s nice to ‘meet’ others who have an age gap like we do with our SOs. I have the largest age gap in a relationship within my group of friends, but it is ok. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are three years apart, I’m 36 and he’s 33. I used to think that I would never be with someone younger than me but he’s actually more mature than some of the older men that I’ve dated in the past.

We have a 5 year age gap. I have just turned 22 he is 27 ๐Ÿ™‚ although he isn’t a manchild so to speak I think he doesn’t like the idea of being grown up (i.e getting married and having children) so I think having a younger partner helped with that aspect (ok not the marrage thing….I was obsessed so made sure to convert him )

My fiancé and I have a 21 year age gap. We really don’t notice it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Our family and friends are all so very happy for us. I’m 25 and he is 46. We got together 3 years ago, and have been inseparable ever since. We balance perfectly together as I am very mature for my age and he although mature has a very silly kid-like personality which I love. He has mentioned that even in his 30s he was very, very immature so I truly have the best of him! It’s hard to judge a generational gap, sure 21 might seem like a crazyyyy number of years, but it’s all about the context and sincerity of the relationship.

My fiance and I are the same age, born 3 weeks apart. We met in high school, so that’s why. 

My mom and dad, who just celebrated their 39th anniversary, are 3 years apart.

I think that age gaps aren’t an issue until the gap is so big that, like others have said, milestones and other life goals or big steps are at totally different periods. For example if a 20 year old student married a 35 year old with children, I think that would be pretty challenging.

I’m 5 and a bit years older than him. Never mattered, though other people occasionally think so .  Silly really,  given the average life expectancies etc

He is 1.5 years older than me (I am about to turn 26, he recently turned 27). It works for us, he is mature for his age in my opinion.
