I was very interested in the age difference post. Since everyone seemed to have a problem with that age difference because she was a minor.
I was 18 and DH was 26 when we met. Was that unacceptable? ( just wondering, we have been married for almost 15 years so it won't change anything)
My mother wasn't happy with the situation (he had children, I didn't etc) but I wasn't living at home when I met him, so her opinion, while it was valid. Didn't really have a bearing on what I was going to do.
