Would you rather marry someone who is younger than you, same age as you or older than you?

For me, age doesnt matter as long as I love the person i am going to marry. Love is the most important consideration in marriage.

I agree with you. Love is the foundation of a lasting marriage. From it springs trust , patience and understanding.

I think, i would rather marry a person who is older than me. Actually, i have a boyfriend this time who is 15yrs older than me..I had boyfriends before that is younger than me but the relationship doesnt work because of many conflicts like we still have to go outside to meet our friends, i mean were both young and cant manage much about our likes. But if i will marry the much older one, i think, it could be better coz were both matured enough, and i also like him to make me baby..lol

To consider the past is a good thing. They are our learning experiences. Go for the best choice - the one you think is is truly good for you. Good luck!

Age is a time of life, it's a state of mind. Love is yourself feeling. Why do we want to get married? Just because the two person want to look after each other, support each other, help each other, to share happiness and sadness together. I don't care the girl is older or younger than me, I will marry a girl as long as she love me. I'm working in Fuzhou now. If u r interested in Chinese, I would like to help you. welcome to fuzhou!

I'd prefer marrying someone 2 years older than me. Some say guys act 2 years younger than their age. Though I believe maturity does not come with age. It really depends on the individual. I ended up marrying someone 3 months older than me:)

That's correct. Love is very important in marriage.

My first husband was almost 8 years older than I am. We had very little in common, we couldn't talk about growing up because we grew up so differently. My current husband (we've been happily married for 9 years), are only a year apart, he's older than I. We have so much fun remembering things from our past, shows we watched, music, actors/actresses, toys we had. That has actually been a healthy part of our relationship. So to answer your question, I would have to say just one year older.

Age doesn't really matter for marriage but may be understanding varies according to age, one younger might not be able to think like the way you think and an elderly person can be understanding or over understanding at times. The way one has understanding depends on person to person. well marry one who knows u better.

I agree with you. Well, I am happily married with my husband who is 3 years older than me :D We dated for 3 years before getting married.

a bit older i think... but if you meet a great younger guy, there's no reason to dump him.

:D So age doesn't matter to you then. It all depends on the kind of person one has.

I don't really think age matters when it comes to matters of the heart. I married a man almost 13 years older than me. We have been married alot of years and have been happy. I think if age is all your worried about you may miss the love of your life. I know I would have.
