Age difference relationships.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Who has the biggest age difference here between them and their SO/DH?

Who would never date/marry someone with a huge age difference like 10+ years or more. Who would be ok with that?

what are the pittfalls? what are the good parts?

I ask because a friend of mine says her father (in his 40s) has been talking to a girl our age (22ish-23ish) and I would like to think I am pretty open minded and wouldnt mind dating a man in his mid to early 30's...but I think it would be strange (for me anyway) to start a relationship with someone within a 5 yr age difference from my parents (older or younger) KWIM?

My Husband is 14 years older than I am.  We have been together for 13 years, married for 10.  Works for us.

DH and I are 11 years apart. I am 37, he is 48. We have been together for 10 years. Obviously I don't have a problem with it. DH is only 6 years younger than my mom. DH has brothers and sisters that are older than my parents. I have nieces and nephews who are only a few years younger than me. Not a big deal to any of us.

My dh is only five years older than me. To date someone who's close to my fathers age would creep me out.
That's just me though.

My dh is 5 years older than me. It doesn't bother me but in the past I had dated a man that was 15 years older than me and it didn't last long because he felt the need to control every aspect of our relationship. When he started trying to control my life outside of our relationship I cut it off with him.

Age difference means nothing when you are a consenting adult!!  There is about 6 years difference between my husband and myself,  and it doesn't really mean anything.

He's the most mature guy I've been with I believe it's all in how you are raised.

The oldest guy I've dated was 9 years older and he was so immature.
