How many days, weeks, months or years apart are you and your partner in age? Which of you is older? My boyfriend and I are 4 months apart - him being older. =D I thought it would be interesting to find out about all of you. Mal.

My hubby is seven years my senior and by God's grace we have been enjoying each other for the past 15 years. He pampers our family with love, care and and the basic necessities in life. He loves our family and I love the way he takes care of us.

How old were you when dating someone twice your age? Out of interest, not that it makes much difference =]

I was around 14-15 or so and he was actually 32 at the time...It was a very short lived affair LOL but he was a great guy in all honesty but it was country to country and I was really young (age wise)etc...

My husband's 7 years 8 months older than me. My Dad's 4 years older than my Mom. My brother's girlfriend is 2 years younger than him. I have a friend who's husband is 17 years older than she is, but he doesn't look that old he he he...Nobody thinks that he's 17 years older than he is. I also had a relative whose wife was 21 years younger than he was. My mother-in-law is 12 years younger than her husband.

Thank you very much for all the ages, it helps me get a good scope =] I think it's awesome that in such a close group of people the ages can differ so much. Thanks again for your response! Have a wonderful day.

My hubby is 7 years older then me. Its funny how that isn't that big of a deal but way way back when we first met for the first time I was about 14 or 15. YIKES! We actually were friends for all those years we have been a couple now for 5 years. I still get a kick out of how little 7 years seems now but neither of us would have ever thought that we would be together way back when we met!

It is funny, isn't it! I was friends with, and ended up dating my 24 year old friend when I was 15, and it was supposed to be such a big deal then, but if I had been 25 and he 34, no-one would have battered an eyelid. We're still close friends and we still don't understand the problem =P There's also the same stigma with older women, society moves in strange ways, I guess. =D I wish you and your hubby all the best!

i am 1 year older than my husband. i think age difference does not matter in a relationship. its the physical, emotional, financial and psychological stability that matters most.

My husband is 9 years and 1 month older than I am. We have been together for 7 years, and the age difference has never caused any problems between us. I was 21 when we got together, so we did some bar hopping and partying together before we settled down and started our family. :)

That's really awesome - I see that as one of the best ways to get into a serious relationship - the friendship and fun and a lot of good times together before 'settling down' (if that ever happens =P) Thanks for your response, and best wishes to you both!

My husband and I have small distance in age,he is thirty seven years old now and I'm thirty one years old. So he is six years older than me. Well, I didn't really count about months, weeks or days since it will get more complicated for me to do that. But so far, we have no problem with the the age difference in our marriage life. Just need understanding to each other I guess.

I think you're very right indeed. As long as there's love and understanding, the age shouldn't be an issue. Thanks for your response!

Hum,I have never thought about this question before you asking me,in my opinion,if I like this boy,it does matter how old he is,and where he is.I only want to know what is he,if he really love me,it is enough:)

My boyfriend is 7 years older than me and we've been together for 4 years and 3 months now. During the first year or so, everyone considered our relationship as being some sort of a crime... Now, few people see it as something unusual... I'm actually happy to see there are so many couples with the same age difference. This really proves that in love, age isn't and never will be a problem. Hugs, Roxana

My boyfriend is one year younger than me.At first,I didnt feel comfortable about that since I always want to find someone who is 3-5 years older than me.I believe its perfect.But I found its quite common to find a boyfriend who is younger.For example,one of my colleagues,his boyfriend is three years younger than her.Besides,my roommate is also two year older than his boyfriend.So now I'm ok with the age difference,hehe.

Don't have a boyfriend right now. :)-- But my husband is a year younger than me. My first boyfriend was older - in his thirties while I was still in my twenties. My first crush was in his forties - Dan Bradbury. The first guy who proposed to me Klaus Moeller, was 30 - I was eighteen. My second boyfriend - when I was thirty was twelve years younger, eighteen. I went out with him for about three years. He's definitely the exception not the rule - and as he was balding at eighteen already and was going to school for computer programming - a geek of course - and working - he was not a typical eighteen year old. His mom actualy was around his age when she married her college physics professor - who is about the same age difference as he and I were. She too looked older at eighteen and much younger at that time - she was in her forties and looked y age or younger - in fact he looked so much older and she so much younger that when they were at the hospital or if she took him around to her work for some get together - people would think he was her husband. LOL. I adored him but he wasn't the one. He's now working on his doctorate and with a girl who yells at him a lot. He says he appreciates our communication now. He'll work all day, go to class then Tai Kwon Do - and she'll yell at him for not making dinner. He says her parents yell at each other so I guess thats where she got it. Its funny because over the years he's told me to be careful and not let people abuse me in any way - even if its a boyfriend who throws down the remote angrily after I ask him to put down his music or the tv when I'm on a business call. Yet he chooses a girl who yells. Go figure. He's loyal. I think its okay that my husband is one year younger than me as guys tend to live shorter lives then girls. For some reason I was imagining him a few years younger - I guess from some things you've said. Hope you and he and his mom and all the kiddies are well - and your new bird.

Hi there Well, my partner was 36 on 16th September, last week. I am 47 which means there is 11 years difference between us. For some reason when I was much younger my boyfriends were alot older than me. Yet, since I have got older they seem to be alot younger than me. Can anyone tell me why that is. I have never really thought about it before. Denise
