I agree with spaladino and honey. It can be ok at a certain age and/or maturity. It is just not right for a 13 year old to be dating a 25 year old kind of thing. But if the person is 25 and the other is 40 or 50 even then that is ok, though they will certainly be in different stages of their life.

I do not think age matters once you get over 18. I have dated an older man. He was 15 yrs older then me. We got along great. Do to a job transfer I moved and left him behind. My mother is middle aged and dating a man that is ten years younger and happier then she has ever been. People that are 23 and going out with a 14 or 15 yr old is not right. There minds are not mature enough yet. Once they are old enough and mature enough to make those decisions it's ok.

As much as I would like to say that it doesn't, it does most of the time. Usually I think it depends on the age gap and the ages of the two partnets. Could a 20 yr old be with a 40 year old? Depends on the maturity of the 20 yr old. If she was not mature enough to handle a realationship with an older man than of course that would self destruct eventually. I guess it also depends on the gender of the two. A 20 year old guy 90% of the time COULDN'T handle a realationship like that! My husband is 13 years my senior. I married him when I turned 18. Sometimes the gap in our ages does really show. But I love it that he doesn't try to act hip and trendy, that would be kinda awkward.

no i dont think age is relevant in a realtionship as long as both parties are adults and they have a genuine love for one another then age should not matter. love crosses all boundarys and age is just another of those boundarys in my eyes.

For marriage purposes, it doesn't really matter. As long as you're in the right age, any will do. But I don't agree with old men, like in their 50s having a relationship with a girl in their teens or 2os. That is too much gap. Ten years is okay. By the way, you username is your birthdate??? why did you choose that? take care =)

i think most people think age does not really matter in a relationship especially when the man is older? What about if the lady is the older?

Age does matter when you happen to have different priorities in life. Younger people still want to enjoy their single life and being someone who's almost hitting my 30s makes me a bit worried. I don't want to get married for now, I just want to have a child first. I happen to love someone who's 6 years my junior and he doesn't seem to mind. So we'll see how that goes. Lol.

I don't think so. Age doesn't really matters right? If you really love the person then show it and prove it.

In some cases it matters. I don't think a girl in her teens should be dating a man in his 20's or 30's. When people get into their mid 20's they should be mature enough to know who they want to spend their time with so age should not be a factor.

Hi 12051976, I don't think age should really matter as long as both are mature enough to understand the situation. As long as both are happy together and get along well, that should be all that matters. Blessings.

age is just a number as long as u and the other person get along
