Can resist a relation between a woman older let s say 10 years with her man? If man don t care, and she is good looking, can be this two people toghether for all life? He accept, but can she risck to be involved in a relation with a younger man? Do you know couples who resist even there is a difference of age between those two? Can they to be happy in this kind of relations or people "mouth' will affect this relation?

hi... My experience tells me that if there is love, everything else matters nothing. If the love is true, if the feelings're genuine, then everything's fine. Age, of all, matters the least as long as the feelings are true... :-)

Love is the best feelings, and if we have just ine day of trully love, why not? Age, religion, are just words, all is matter if somebody meet his fate and feel happy. What is better, to live as people want, or to live how you want and feel? I am sure that if people are more tolerant, all will be more happy.

Love forms a solid and good basis for everything. If the love is true, then nothing should hinder... Yes, I agree with ya... Take care

Hey I have a girl friend who is more than 10 years younger than her... she was 38, now going to 40... and he was 24 or 25 during those times they met. She is religious, he is kind... he makes an effort to visit her travelling a total of 4 hours every week during their day off from work, with lots of foods for us. She was my roommate. I had a doubt at first, coz as one of her friend we actually don't believe that a younger guy would fall seriously in love with someone whose age is like her mom's... But then he has proven it, they got married, they got one daughter now, she went back to their country when she was pregnant and after sometime he took her back to be with him in the country where they work. So I guess it will always depend on the guy. Whether he has real intentions to the older girl or not. But definitely this will create gossips among friends of the guys I guess. Coz I'm sure it will not be an issue on the girl's camp because they will only be happy that she has finally found someone when everyone thought she's never gonna get someone to marry her.

Nice story, so, all can be true, if those two persons love each other all can be fine, age is not important if they love. People will talk for ever, even they don t have reasons, important if they are happy or not, right? They don t live in house with people around. You are very right, depend how much he is mature and know to protect her, and show love and respct to her, and don t let her to see that age is against them love.

Yes the guy can joke about their age gap, but that is because they are both comfortable making fun with each other. Not to slap in her face that hey you got a younger husband... and you know people around us finds happiness in talking about other people. But it always depends on how we interact with other people. I have not seen or heard anyone talk about them. Only us, the couple's friends talks about them during the time he was still courting her. But then when we got to know him more, we never make them feel about their age difference. Yes, love is always a wonder.. what's important is that they are both happy and they love and respect each other ^^

Life is short, nobody know what tomorrow will be, maybe in next few minutes something bad happened, so why we don t desrve to live the moment? Who are others to judgge? Love is love, life is short, we must keep what we have if we want really.

I have learned that it does not matter. Whatever your religion is, your beliefs, your age gap... Because at the end of the day, it is between you two. If you want to work hard for your relationship to grow, ifyou want to work together for your love to be as it was in the beginning when you havejust seen each other, or during courtship. Love relationships are a decision. When you decide you want to stay together, you stick together and work things out.

Maybe is fate, when two people meet, exist or not a kind of chemistry. In my opinion , age is just a number, i saw people 70 years who are inlove and live in peace and love; who we are to blame? I admire people who want to stay toghether no matter what, even people acusse them for something. Love is love.

As long as both party love each other, age does not matter. The difference in age is not important and only society and people put weight on this age matter. Love does not know restriction and this what makes love wonderful and exciting.

I think that it depends how old the youngest person in the relationship happens to be. If they're over the age of 21 then I don't really think that age matters to a huge extent anymore. As long as both of the people want the same thing from their relationship, then I am of the opinion that age simply doesn't matter in the slightest. If you don't want the same things then you might start to resent each other because you're not happy and you're looking for someone to blame. Only you know whether you're comfortable with a relationship or not, and it really is up to you to make up your own mind about that.

I think that age does not matter in love. One of my mom's friends dated a man eight years younger than her. Their relationship lasted for eleven years. I know a lady that when 32 years old dated a 59 year old man. She is now 37 years old and he is now 64 years old. They are still getting along superbly. I would have dated a man up to 15 years older than me or up to 5 years younger than me.

it doesn't matter if there's an age gap, as long as the two personalities are compatible. and I really can't understand why people think there's a problem if the woman is the older person in a relationship. it really makes no difference. there's no rule that a woman should be younger than her man. I know a lot of relationships where a woman is a fair amount older, and they're fine. it makes no difference.

I think there are really only 2 issues with a large age difference between people in a relationship. One is other people talking, gossiping or criticizing it. The other issue is the compatibility, interests & the mindset of the people involved. I think the bigger issue is the 2nd one. I think when there is a significant difference in age, it can lead to additional problems in the relationship. For example, say a 37 year old is dating a 22 year old. It seems likely that the older person would be getting ready to "settle down", get married, maybe have kids in the next year or two. But the younger one is probably not thinking about that -- not that it is impossible, but I think chances are, someone in their early 20s would probably rather date around, get experience, than settle down and have kids so early. Ideally, I would rather not date anyone more than 5 years older or younger than me (but considering that I'm 22, I guess I ought to say no more than 2 or 3 years younger). But my absolute cutoff age difference is 10 -- anymore than that & I think it's just awkward. I would hate to be out & have people think he's my father or son

My mother is 12 years older than my step-dad, and my husband is 35 years older than I am. Age does not matter when two people are in love. I can think of a lot of people who are the same age and in unsuccessful relationships. The relationship does not depend on age, it depends on the love shared by the two people involved.
