How old is too old for a mate...?

I'm 24 years old, and my boyfriend is 33.

People look at me weird when they find out how old he is and wonder why I want to date such an "older man".

Lol I don't see him as "old". 9 years older than me isn't old...

Now if he was like 50, I'd get it.

So, how old is too old? Is your husband much older than you? And how does it work out?

I have a great aunt and uncle that had a 25 year age difference and their marriage was fantastic. Age is just a number. My husband is only 6 months older than me.

I'm almost 26 and my bf just turned 34, he's perfect for me all the guys that I've dated my age or around my age were too young for me and not mature enough.

This.

Quoting bpryce:

IMO if your man and your father would have attended high school during the same time frame than that is too old.

.....idk.......you cant put an age on love (so long as its legal obviously) but if a 20 year old wants to marry a 50 year old.....so be it. im 25 and my DH is 37. we have been together 7 years, married 6 and known each other for 10 years. were just fine. but DH does get the 'youre filthy!' looks......often
