Hi, i have heard many people saying we must marry a person having at least 4 to 5 yrs of age difference,as because the two person marrying can feel better comfort with each others company and can better understand each others feelings whereas in case of no such age difference they always argues with each other and misunderstand grows very quickly.is it true??

From my experience i can say there should be 2 years gap, i saw many families there is a gap of min 2 years is there. I wl agree with this statement, men always feel they should b in a top or higher level compared to women. If wife is younger to him he feels that she wl obey him, since most of the men have ego. And, women has so patience to hear whatever the her husband's says (whether she wl perform or not, is a secondary). By observing our family members all men r alike. If wife hears to him he feels more happy.

but nowadays 2 yrs is not a big gap that always a women hear to her husband and do all the things to make her husband feel happy she may have some expectation from her husband too.

i personally feel comfortable and secure with an older guy. i don't know coz i am really not attracted to younger guys or maybe guys of my age. as for matters of a happy marriage life? i guess age also matters. i am married to an older guy. in fact my husband is almost 11 years older than me. we never had serious problems and if we do, we always patch things up. he always consults me about every decisions he makes. i'm happy with him. happy mylotting everyone!

Yes I think its true. Based on my experience I can say that differences between ages are also has a good effect on happy marriage life. My husband is three years older than me and every time we have problem he consider me and he understands me because when I get mad he just give me a favor and he don't want to start a big fight. My husband is so understanding that is why until now we are still together and we have a strong relationship.

To maintain a relationship others have to make a certain criteria like marrying with this age gap because they believe on that. For me, age difference is not a factor towards marriage. What matters most is for the couple to handle the situation. It is on how they will live with each others arms being on their comfortable level. Having the same thoughts, feelings, and interests the two will share would make them feel the comfort and not with age gap. It does not mean that when a person reaches a certain age, he or she is only limited of doing things or only capable of certain activities. Thus, it is more having things in common.

Well,its kinds an ongoing spree today,couples or going to be are ok with the age difference of 5to6 years,if they have the compatiability,maturity,and understanding which can tag themselves to each other,then this age difference has no meaning,as the same can even happen in the same age,its then again how one carry the relationship,but ofcourse,age difference mor than this,cannot be called as common phenomenon,it constitutes very less percentage in the society.What do you say?

Hi, A person's maturity and intelligence grows with the number of significant events that one face in life rather than how much older he is.For example,when someone looses his father when he is young,he becomes more expert in handling patriarchal activities than somebody who has not faced the mishap.Likewise understanding each other is an issue subdued with the understanding of passion for humanity and commitment to responsibility.Hence I feel,it's not necessary to have a difference of age in case of marriage.
