What's the age difference between you and your spouse? Was it an issue? What was?

I am 3 1/2 years older. The age wasnt an issue as much as our denominations were.

  • My fiance is 20 and I am 17. When we first started dating I was 16 and he was 19, his Mom had an issue for the first few months. But no issues now.

  • My husband and I are 11 years different (with him being the elder) we have been together 9 years now and age has really not been an issue. I was 19 when we got married and at first he kind of treated me like a little girl and acting like I didn't know about the world because I was younger. That wore off pretty fast though and it hasn't been an issue since like our first year of marriage. I know that sometimes other people thought the age difference was too much and actually when we first met he lied to me and told me he was a year younger because he felt like I wouldn't like him if I knew his real age (yeah like 1 year is going to make that big of a difference).

  • Age doesn't make a differance unless the age is like 15 years apart. My husband and I are 6 yrs apart. My mom always said there should be at least 5. I've always preferred older men if I'm with someone younger I feel like I'm with a baby.

  • My mother was 19 years younger than my father. But she says they were actually about the same age. LOL
