Hey, girls and guys. I have some friends who date or even married the guys that are younger than them. Say my sis in law, ahe also older 2 years than my bro. I think maybe if there are small few years difference like 2 or 3 will be ok. But how about 8 or 10. Will it be a problem? I have some friends too that they dont like to marry guys than too much younger than they do. What do you think? Will you marry a guy that is much younger than you? Or guys... will you marry a girl that is too much older than you? What is the maximum difference of ages for you? I would love to hear your opinion. Thanks....

Well, I rpefer it if the guy is older than if it was the other way around. I'd go for someone 5 years older than me max.

Yeah, I will agree with you too. There is no self confidence for us women to walk along with guys who are yaounger than us. Right? :D

Hi Viollet_ry, I dont see a problem with it at all. I'm 48 and my wife is 12 years older than I am and we just celabrated our tenth anniversary. I've never been happier with my life than I am right now. I guess Ive always been a bit old fasioned and so is my wife so it works out real good for us. Take care, Terry

So glad to hear that Terry. I am sure you will be the happiest man right now :D I am sure that it wont be a problem for a guy having a much more younger wife. What the problem is that a guy who has a much more older wife or a girl who married to a much more younger guy. That is my discussions about. So what do you think about that?

I don't think it matters, as long as they love each other. I am not sure if I could date a man younger than me though. My husband is a year older than me, which I find perfect.

May be it wont be a problem if that doesnt happen to us directly. If this really happens to us, we will think twice to make that kinda decision, just like you said you wont be sure of that too. But I am glad that you do have a perfect husband. Mine is older a year tan me too. :D

I think age difference plays kind of crucial role in a relationship. And if it is like 8-10 years then I think it is kind of a bad idea for a girl to marry 8-10 years younger boy. Cause the main problem is that the relation is not going to work out. Not only in girls case but also in boys case who dates 10 years younger girls. FOr example, if a girl is 30 then if she dates 22 years old boy. After like 5-6 years girl will be 36 and boy would be just 25. And I think he would search someone of his age then. So, we should be alot careful unless you are very sure that this guy is meant for you while dating a young boy.

This make sense for me so much. I think when he realized that she looks much more older than he is (especially when the a woman reachs 30 and above), he will think that its kinda a mistake dating an older woman especially when he see how attractive girls of their own ages. I will say that the person who will get hurt absolute the girl right?
