 What do you think about large age differences in relationship (if legal ofcourse)? How close in age are you and your SO?

I am 21 almost 22 and DF is 37. We have about 16 years between us and my soon to be step son is only 5 yrs younger than me. Its very odd sometimes lol but hes an amazing person.

As long as it is for love and not the love of money or some other superficial reson, age is only a number.

i have a problem if there is a big gap. i just dont really think its appropriate.i just think "they were already losing their virginity (or whatever)by the time you were born"

my husband is 28 and im 26, ive also never dated someone more than 3 years older or younger than i am.

My dh and me are 3 months apart both going to be 25 this year. My best friend is engaged to a guy that is older than her dad lol. He is a great guy and is amazing with her 6 yo son ( he autistic ). He treats them great so who cares how old he is. It is a lil weird that his kids are the same age as us though lol

Age is just a number.

DH and I are 8 years apart (he's older).  When we were first dating ( I was 18, he was 27), my family freaked out and started calling him a cradle robber, etc etc.  We've been together 8 years now and married 6, and happily so. :D

I'm 23 and my df is 35 my youngest 22 months and his oldest is 15, at first it was a little strange, but we giggle about it, I give him crap about his gray hairs and he gives me crap too lol we are deeply in love with each other an that's all that matters

DH and I are both 29 we are 10 days apart.  I do not believe age in a relationship makes a difference.  I have always liked older guys IMO.  DH is just lucky I knew him in high school.
