i was just contemplating about the "what if's" i know the cliche 'love knows no boundaries' but isn't marrying someone at that stage of his/her life raises quite a few eyebrows and queries about the younger partner's true intentions?

I don't think I will. It is strange for me to marry someone who aged like my parents. He may more mature. But I think there will be quite a lot of troubles when we living together.

I am in love with a man 24 year older than me for the last ten years and I am still damn crazy about him. But for several reasons we could not marry. I am still nurturing my dream to be hos bride some day...

My husband and I are trying for a baby. He's 30 years older than me and he has made me the happiest person alive. I could never live with out him. When we first met, he was in the middle of a divorce and consequently the first 3 years of our marriage was a massive financial struggle, but we prevailed. I love him more and more each day, but in turn it breaks my heart. I often forget the age gap, but when people point it out to me, I may sometimes worry about our future. At the moment I am only 28.... however, by the time I am 40 years old, he will be 70... Will I start to notice the age gap then? Will I still be sexually attracted to him? Who knows. I have loved him since I was 18. I love his children from his previous marriage. I love his family. I love the life he has given me. All the support through my Physics degree, following my teaching career, he helped keep my friends close to me... he has been a blessing. What ever the future brings, the last 10 years were worth it. I look forward to becoming a mother.

I think I will, just a personal opinion for no good reason.

Most girls don't want to marry an older man. They dream and wait for prince charming to come and marry them.

Hi. lei468. No. I would not marry anyone that is pass this age. I would be more concerned about living and having children from this person. I don't mean to sound prejudice, but that is the way that I feel.

Definitely not, I want somebody my own age give or take about 5 years.

I've noticed women answering this question but having dated a woman who's 28 years older then I was, YES, I would marry a woman who's 25 or even 30 years older than I am...

age does not matter as long as you love the person, age should not be a problem at all.

i think i'll give it a try. there is always the option of divorce or annulment, right? kidding aside, one cannot judge a person by fact that they married someone who is 25 years older. it is true that there will be a bit of hustle, bustle and buzzing among relatives but if the couple is really in love, then age will not matter...

Actually,my sister married someone 20 years older than she.And they are happy and sweet,and they just have their first child last year! To be honest,we did persuade her not to marry someone that old,but now,we all shout up! In a marriage,age gap is not that matters.It is love that matters!

As long as the guy speaks my language fairly and as long as we both love and understand each other's mishaps, why not.. But If I'm the 25 years older than my husband-to-be, that's an issue. Hahaha.. I want to have a husband older than me and if you ask me why, it'll take us long to finish my explanation.
