  • I don't think it matters as long as they are both mature adults.

  • it varies with each relationship. i do however believe it is different with most older female/younger male relationships. men take longer to mature emotionally than women, so it depends if the woman is willing to put up with a man less mature than her. some men, though younger than the woman, are mature for their age, and that goes the same for women. again it varies.

  • It doesn't matter. AGe is only a number. Each individual and their maturity( or lack of it ) is what matters

  • I don't think it makes any difference at all if the couple are OK with it. My daughter will be 26 in January & her husband is 22. They are very compatible & happy together. He is very mature for his age, is a great provider & a wonderful husband. I also have a friend who is 29 & her husband is 73. They have an 18 month old & just had another baby a month ago. Kind of gross to me, but it works for them.
