    He is 9.5 years older.  Sometimes when people find out that he is that much older, they follow up with “Wow, I had no idea there was that much age difference.”  I always follow that up “you better be saying that he looks young!” Lol

    I am two months older than Darling Husband. BiL is 7 years older than my sis and we like to joke about how when he was graduating HS she was a fifth grader. Less weird since they met at 22 and 29.

    He is 8 years older than me. We don’t really notice it, but definitely get comments every once in a while (since 8 years is a bigger deal in your 20’s than later on in life).

    His sister has joked that he’s having a “child marriage” and early on in our relationship his friends would sometimes tease him. No one really says much anymore. I don’t let it bother me (especially the stuff in the beginning).

    @mrsrecon:  No. As a matter of fact, when I read your comment, I was like- why would anyone say something negative? 🙂

    ETA: I mean, I know some folks might think that’s a big age difference but no one notices and I’ve always dated older men.

    @mrsrecon:  Yeah, it was pretty rude. I guess she thought that since her rudeness was misdirected it was okay for her to be rude. The only reason she knew my FI’s age is because he and her son played soccer together when they were in Jr. High and were the same age. My mom is 5 years older than my dad, but even when they got married, everyone thought my dad was the older one. I don’t get some people’s fixation with being “so far apart” in age. I mean, I could understand if an 18 year old was marrying a 68 year old who had children and GRANDchildren older than she, but I guess people just like to scoff when things don’t fit their perfect world scenario.
