My Darling Husband is 9 years older than me. When we were first dating many, many years ago, the gap between us seemed a lot wider than it does now. Although I was an undergrad when we met and he was in graduate school, so we had similar schedules/lifestyle. Now the gap between us is basically non-existant. We own a house, have pets, and are becoming parents, we’re equals in every way.

His parents are retired and mine still have years of working left. I do think that has contributed to us being closer to his parents than mine, since his parents have lots more time to travel to visit with us. And If he’s listening to music I haven’t heard before I always ask if the band is new or old and if they’re old, I have to ask if the band is still together. 😉 It’s hard to tell sometimes because his music collection spans more time than mine. But those are really the only differences.

He’s 2 years older than me.  I think it’s a minute difference but he likes to emphasize how much older he is than me – I think because he’s always been the baby of the family. 😛

@lenabee:  you’re right – it will be completely different when you are older! i’m 33 and my fiancé is 39 – and we barely notice…we do joke about it when he’ll say when i was 19 i was a bartender, and i’ll be like yeah, and i was in 7th grade~LOL!

He is just over 4 years older than me.  I don’t really think about it much at our ages.  Just weird when he goes back to talk about high school and I realize that I was only 10 at the time.  haha

@lenabee:  FH is a year and a bit older than me. He was born in January ’89 and I was born in May ’90.

There is exactly 6 years between my parents, dad is older. I think that was a bit unusual when they got married but the larger age gaps are more accepted now.
