Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

 Do you think relationships where there is a significant age gap between partners can work?  Does age really matter if you have found your soul mate?

There is a nine year age gap between my husband and I. I don't see a problem with it, we enjoy doing the same things, have a strong sense of family, etc. It works for us.

There is 14 yrs between DH and I. My last marriage there was a 16 yr age gap. I dont think age really matters. Every marriage takes work and dedication to work. Age to me is just a number!

My Ex BF and I have an age gap. Im currently 39 and he's 50. He is the father to my 7 year old. My BF now is 38 and I'm 39; were a little more together with each other. when I was with the EX BF he was more set in his life and already was the wise one...LOL.

 Age mattered to me. I wanted to marry someone close to my age. I got lucky that my husband matured remarkably fast and by the age of 20 was making more money then most men in their 40's. He is a year older then me. I think age does play a role but it's up to the couple how much that role affects their relationship.

 My DH is 39 and I am 28, this December will be 8 years married. Yes age gaps can work, and I do believe age is just a number.

If you're in love and have similar interests it can work. :)
