Do you think love has age limits?

I really think you can fall in love at any age. When you're younger (like little kid age), you may not truly know what your feelings mean but I definitely believe that they are there. Then years down the road, these feelings have matured and now you may actually be ready to be with this person you "loved" as a little kid. I also believe that elderly people can fall in love too. My great grandmother got remarried when she was in her 80's. I met my boyfriend when I was 17 almost 18 and I've been with him for over a year now. I'm proud to say that he is going to be my first and last boyfriend. After being friends first, I really got to know him and I saw how different he was from any other guy that I've met. Then, we started dating and after a few months I realized that this is someone I want to spend forever with. Some people say teenagers are too young to know what love really is and that they shouldn't get serious when they're young. Yes, there are some teens that add to this reputation by having relationships and then constantly moving on to the next. I believe that you can fall in love at any age. I also think that teenagers can be in serious relationships and end up being together and getting married. So I truly believe that love has no age limits and people are able to fall in love at any age if they meet their special person.

I think that younger couples can have problems differentiating between love and lust, as it takes a little time to understand the difference. On the other hand, I have known many older couples who got married in their 30s or so, and divorced within only a year or two, so that is just as bad. It all depends on how mature the relationship itself is, and how well suited the couple is I guess.

Yes, some young couples can have problems but there are also many times where these relationships last for years and can even end in marriage. When love hits you, there's really no stopping it, whatever the age may be. I think whether or not it lasts does depend on how mature the relationship is, like you said

Falling in love is something that comes unexpectedly, no matter how old or how young you are, when that feeling is present, you can't just ignore or deny it. I fell in love with my wife when I first saw her, she had a boyfriend then but I told myself that if he lets her go, I would make her my wife. That day came and I made my move, I was persistent, I know what I want and I'd do anything for her. She accepted my feelings and we were together ever since.
