Would you date or marry someone older (or younger) than you?

Unfortunately there is still a lot of prejudice when it comes to the age difference between couples... But what do you think of that? If a person were 10 or 15 years older (or less) than you? How would you react? In my case, my girlfriend is 5 years younger than me ... but, regardless of age, I wouldn't see any problem (since I really liked her).

I wont mind dating an olderwoman as long as she can still have a baby because I want to have children. The youngest woman I will date will be 28. I do not want to date a teenager as they are nightmare fuel for me.

You ask a question that has no definitive answer. I was married to a woman 16 years younger than me...most of my favorite music came out before she did. We've been divorced 14 years this year. And I have pretty much been single since. Would I still date someone that much younger than me? Now, I would...because they would be at least 41. And maybe they would be more settled down and have a bit more sense than my ex did when she was in her 20's and me in my 40's. Age may not matter...but stability and personality sure does.

My wife is two years younger than me, but that's not much. I dated a woman several years older than me when I was 20, but knew we didn't have a future. In the past, 10 or more years between a husband and his wife was not unusual as the man would often establish himself before taking a younger wife.

The greatest love of my life was over 20 years older than me. I would have stayed with him but there were unforeseen circumstances. My first husband was just 20 years older. It would not have mattered but we could not get over some differences that had nothing to do with age. Now my hubby is my soul mate and we have a six year difference.

I would date some older or younger but since I'm 20 years old 18 is as low as I will date right now but that age will go up as I age. I don't think I could be 30 or 40 and date someone who is 18 or 20. Age doesn't matter to me but I just think that is weird. My current boyfriend is 3 years older than me but I have talked to someone who was 14 years old than I was. I believe as long as everyone is of legal age, consenting, and happy then it shouldn't matter what age they are.
