My husband is 6 years older than me. It's not a HUGE difference but I'm 24 and he's 30. Sometimes he says and does things (like get upset if I stay up late) that makes me feel like he's reprimanding me. Sometimes I feel like he dismisses me because he feels I'm childish. Or emotional. He isn't a bad man - he works hard, keeps food on the table, bills paid. I'm a SAHM who gets to start college. I KNOW that I am SO lucky. I do love him. Just sometimes I hate getting treated like since he's older than me, I get dismissed. He had a epiphany one day bc he realized I had our daughter when I was 18 and how quick I had to grow up. He lightened up a little after that but now he's starting again. Does anyone else with an older husband sometimes feel that way?
My dh his 20 yrs older than me and yes I know what you mean. He treats me like a child. I have even said "yes dad" on several occasions. When we first got married and dd#1 was a baby and I pg with dd#2 he would literally go through the house to see what I had done all day I told him "I took care of our first born and I am producing our second....anymore questions?" We have been married 9 years.

My husband is 6 years older than me. I was 24 and he was 30 when we married. He has never treated me like a child, he treats me like an equal. We are 46 and 52 now and that age gap has closed.
