I don't believe in that because in love AGE doesn't really matter. It is a feeling shared by two people no matter what it is in between them. It should be respected and let it be felt freely and with no boundaries.

Dear Shhheila, If you start your love considering age, It is not love at all. There are no logics in love. ak

Age doesn't matter in a relationship...it has to do with the person...their personality, the way the person acts and everything like that.

i am 7 yrs older than my husband. We get along better than anyone else older or younger I have ever been with. Honestly I dont think age matters any more than anything else it just all comes down to how you feel about each other

Well I believe that love is very powerful and it doesn't recognize,race,religion or age.I don't think age has anything to do with relationships because the one who is my bf is 7 years elder to me and we are very happy with our relationship and have already decided to marry each other.

I don't think so. My partner is 15 years older than me and we get along just fine. Actually in my case I think my partner being older than me is much better because he is more patient with my tantrums (not that I always throw them). He takes care of me he sometimes packs my lunch that I will bring to my office. I think it is the connection that matters, not the age.

i would say it depend on how much older the person is from the other. like if the guy is say in his 20's with a girl who's under 18 is sick to me, if the female is old enough to be the guy mom is sick as well. to me it depends on how much older and younger the person is. to me a guy who's is 20 or older just should be messing with anyone under 18 its sick. i know if a guy was that old and messing with my daughter who's 15 would get hurt.

Age is of no consequence in a relationship. It is mental maturity and balance that matters. Some people have it at a tender age while others do not have it at all. One has to compassionate and understanding about the other person to make a relationship a success.I have seen so called mismatched people , the girl being way older have a perfect harmony and on the other hand a couple apparently made for each other break up a relationship in a matter of days.

As long as the ppl are consenting ADULTS adn are on the same page - meaning one isnt out for money or status etc - then no I dont think age really matters..to an extent...I mean I couldnt see a 19 yr old person in love with someone who is in their 80s for example without thinking there is some underlying reason or issue etc..but for the most part age isnt a big deal....Of course maturity plays a role too IMO

Hello shhheila, I totally agree with all of you guys! Age really doesn't matter. LOVE is whats important in a relationship! LOVE knows no age nor gap! Love bridges everything.

Why should it be? I don't think age matters in any relationship. We always see older men with younger women but society frowns at older women with younger men. It is the woman who bears the brunt of being judged in society. She also worries about what her family, friends and others would think. I don't see why age should be a problem. I had a beautiful married life with my late husband and he was 14 years my senior!

I think that age in relationships isn't very important. Only if it is too large, but approximately 10-20 disparity in age makes no big difference. I know many couples where women is older than man, and they have very harmonic relationships. And me too have relationships with guy who are 4 years younger then me. Before these relationships I had only older partners, but from now I am sure that this one is the best that I ever could have.

No, absolutely not. My partner is ten and a half years older than myself; I actually think it adds to the relationship. Of course, it requires a certain mturity on my part... Watch 'Harold and Maude' if you have any lingering doubts! www.imdb.com/title/tt0067185
