You have 4 kids and you begin to "worry" about age now? I am not trying to be mean here, but should you not have thought about that before the 4 kids? If these children are only hers that is one thing, but if they are the both of yours together that is very sad that you are now thinking about it. While 10 years is a difference it is not the longest difference. Age is nothing but a number, it depends on the maturity level of the 2 people involved. If you two have no other problems but the age, I don't see the problem. Problems are only as big as you make them. If these 4 children are both of yours, they will be hurt by this I am sure. I think you should really think long and hard of the choice you are about to make. Every relationship has SOME kind of "issues" if the one you are in only has this one, I would look at that like a blessing. While the two of you may not like everything the same, relationships are about communication, commitment, cooperation, and above all, compromise. Good luck to you.
