  • It should not be an issue. My sister and her hubby are 17 years apart!

  • I just think it's weird if you are in a second relationship and your new partner isn't old enough to be your kids' parent. For example, my ant and uncle recently divorced. Their oldest daughter is 13. His new girlfriend is 20. Makes me think my uncle (ex uncle?) is a sleaze.
    So it's not the age of the people together, but their ages in relation to children already present that bothers me.

  • I'm 29, my husband is 61. I love him to bits, but the last 4 years of marriage gave me a huge reality check on what's important in life.

  • I think for the majority a large age difference will not work. There are those that do but it is definitely the minority and NOT the majority.

    I think a large age difference is not as big a deal the older both people are... example a 19 yr old and a 29 yr old is much more likely to fail than a 44 yr old and a 54 yr old. It is simply a mater of being in the same stage of life, knowing who you are, and where you are going.

  • I don't see a age being a factor as long as no one is under age. But you cant help you fall in love with right. .
