  • I have a hubby who is 14 years older than I and his family does not like it. But I don't mind because he is so good towards me.

  • My DH is 11 years older than me. I want another child, and he kind of does, too, but thinks he is too old. I am also concerned about when we get older. Women whose husbands are a lot older have more years of caretaking, more years of widowhood, and a greater likelihood of poverty. Oh, well, I guess we don't get to choose who we fall in love with!

  • My ex was only 7 years older than me but I recently found out an old friend from school, who is 24 like me, is dating a 40 year old - though he certainly doesn't look it.

  • He's only 5 years older than me. My aunt married a guy that is 19 years older than her! That is an age gap.

  • he is 9 years older and i have gotten asked once or twice if he was my dad. it is more common we get dirty looks because i am 23 (i look youger) and my oldest step son is 8, and we have 4 more.all the kids look alike and they have the same coloring as me, so many people think all 5 kids are mine, that i was 14 or younger when i started having them.
