  • Disgusting. That is a 43 year age difference! I would keep that man far away from my children. Sounds like he has a thing for young ones. He clearly has zero boundries if he will date someone that much younger than him. Tell your sister that there are a lot of younger men that have money too.

  • If they are happy, leave it be. You don't have to sleep with him.

  • I think she is an adult woman who can choose who she can and can't date. My cousin is dating someone 30 years older than her and I could not imagine a better match for her. Maybe she enjoys the maturity. Men these days are immature and think only of themselves. If you want to remain in good standing with your sister. Keep you mouth shut and be happy she is happy, it is not for you to judge. There are alot worse things she could be doing than dating an older man. I hope she is very happy with her older man. Nothing nasty at all about it.

  • If they're happy, then I don't really care. I mean, if he was being abusive or something, I would worry regardless of age. I really only see age as a number.

  • Sorry, but I think it's disturbing too. My husband is 14 years older than me and that seems normal, but he's old enough to be her grandfather and that just seems wrong.

  • Okay! As someone who started dating a 45yr old at the age of 20 I see where your coming from. But he is now my husband and I couldn't imagine loving anyone more!!!! He is decent and kind and would never consider treating me like some of my ex's ever did!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus we have 2 beautiful kids to show for it. If it doesn't work out then she will learn for herself. If it does then you will be eating your words if you end up with someine less than worthy and she is happily married with him! Just saying not trying to bash! I have found that a lot of people who find others who are older have happier realationships than those who date those who are younger! I wouldn't be so quick to judge if I were you, because for all you know he is her true love! GL and that is just my opinion from experience!

  • If she's happy, and he's happy, who are you to rain on their parade!! Be happy for her, whether you approve or not. It is HER life!

  • It can be weird, but love is love. You don't have to accept it.
