Does it affect your relationship? In a good/bad way?

I am older than my hubby by all of two days. Most people find it cute that we are so close in age and our names are Andy & Mandy so to make it even funnier we got married on July 23rd.......you can guess my birthday is Jully 22nd and his is July 24th. No one will forget out anniversary for sure now.

My husband is 2 years younger than me. Now that we are in our 30's, it doesn't effect us, but when we first got married it had a big effect on things.

Nope, same age. Sometimes younger women marry slightly older men and are fine with it. I'm guessing it is more the mental age of the couple that matters most.

Yes, my boyfriend is 10 years older than I am. I've always dated men that were younger than I. This is a new experience for me. He tends to be much more cautious than I and is more set in his ways. I suppose one thing balances another, because I tend to jump into things headfirst and with little thought, always supposing it will work itself out. He considers all that is involved. Its a bit annoying at times, but I suppose necessary in its own way.

My husband is about 15 months younger than me.. He had just turned 15 when we started dating and I was an older lady of 16 and 1/2 years old.. His mother, before she met me, told him that I was too old for him.. I sometimes think that he still acts like a baby, but after 43 years together, he isn't going to change now.. No, it hasn't affected our relationship one way or the other..

My husband is 15 years older than i am. We get along great though. I have dated quite a few guys that are my age and it never worked out. they were not on the same maturity level as I am. I had my daighter from a guy my age and he left us and does not have a thing to do with our daughter. I am so glad that my husband is a great father to her. He has been in her life since she was nine months old. He has definitely changed our life in a good way.

My husband is 7 years older than I am. He was married to his first wife when he was 19 and she was 21. They had a son together, and he's now 9. My husband married me when I was 19 and he was 26. Our son is now 3. The age difference does affect our relationship, sometimes in a good way, and sometimes not so good. It's fun to tease him about robbing the cradle and being a "dirty old man" (he's only 29), and he teases me about putting my hair in pigtails and painting freckles on me. There was a bigger "age gap" when we first met, but he's mellowed since then, and I've matured more, so we're pretty well even now. The actual year number will never change, but we're much more suited to one another this way.

She is older than me but we love each other.She feels younger when she is with me and i feel mature with her.She takes care of me like i was her son.That is good when you consider your spouse as your mother.For me,older spouses are more serious in a relationship because they have learnt a lot from life.Younger than her,i get involved in real life style.Love is more than everything.

My fiance is about 3 years younger than me and I think it doesnt make any difference because I love her with all my heart,and I think age doesnt matter,if you truly love someone,and I dont think the age difference affects our relationship either good or bad,because age is just a number.

i'm a year older than my partner and i guess age doesn't matter when it comes to love as long as we understand each other and love each other

My spouse is older then me by 12 years. Does this affect my relationship? Sometimes it does because he is more mature in some ways then me so he sometimes thinks of me as childish in somethings I do or a way I act. Good or bad way? Sometimes both good and bad. But I see that in most marriages anyhow,where the man always thinks he is superior then the female. I think it was how he was raised. Don't get me wrong he has a sense of humor it just doesn't show itself to me as much as I would like.

My S/O is 17 years my senior. He acts much younger than he is so it works for us. I think if two people love each other it really doesn't matter about age. Age is just a state of mind. I think if I was 12 and he was 29 there might be a problem but as long as it is two adults age shouldn't matter.

It isn't a big age difference but my husband is 6 years younger than me. It doesn't affect our relationship, at all but like it's said not a big age difference. We married when he was 18 and I had just turned 24. He was (still is) very mature for his age and we get along perfectly. My mother remarried for the third time to a man who is 27 and she is 56. 30 year age difference, does it affect her relationship? Not at all. Will it later when she's 70 and he's only 40? Thats a very good question.........
