What is the age difference between you and your fiance?

As long as you feel happy and comfortable with him, I don’t think your age difference is anything to worry about. You may be in slightly different stages of life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy together! As for me, my Fiance is 3.5 years older. I hardly think about the difference.

6.5 years. I’m 30, he’ll be 37 in a few months. He has a baby face though so people think he’s my age or younger all the time, haha.

7 years, we met when I was 20 and he was 27. 

5.5 years later we’ve shared lots of milestones and the age difference only crops up when I don’t get 80s references 😂😂😂😂

I’m 9 days older than Fiance. I love having a toy boy for a handful of days every year, even if I get the annual ‘now you’re old I’m going to trade you in a for a younger model’ joke lol. My Dad is almost 21 years older than my Mum. Two of my school friends married men 10 years older than them. I can’t imagine a 7 year age gap is overly unusual.

If it makes you feel any better, people madencomments about our age difference too when I was 24 and he was 30 going on 31. My mom freaked out about it too. But a few years later it’s not a big deal anymore. We’ve grown together. I like that about us. You should like that about you and your honey too!

the only time I felt the age difference and still feel it is in his biological clock ticking harder than mine. He wanted to get married 3 years ago and have babies even before that but I kind of slowed him down. We’re getting married next year and trying to conceive immediately (or even a couple months before) because we’re both on the same page now about everything! Like I said we just needed a bit of time to grow together!

My SO is 1 month under three years older than I am. I’m 23 and he is 26. 

Age isn’t a big deal once you’re in your 20’s and older. Two of my closest friends are 24 and their boyfriends are 30 and 32. Close to the same age gap as you and your Fiance. I think it is pretty common for women to be with men a few years older than they are. Emotional maturity.

My husband is 4 years older than me.  But he looks young so everyone thinks we’re the same age.

I’ve never even dated anyone older than 2 years so it was interesting when we first got together because I didn’t remember or know a lot of pop references he talked about.  But otherwise we don’t notice the age difference.

I think your age difference won’t be as big a deal as you get older.  23 and 30/31 does sound like a big deal now because I know most 23 year olds are not ready to “settle down”.
