Does the difference in years in a marriage affect the relationship ?

More and more young people are getting married up to the age of 20 . According to statistics , women over the age of 45 are getting married to younger men , even 15 years old ! Men up to the age of 30 are looking for women over the age of 40 ! Does the future of marriage affect these differences for years ? Do you have differences in your family for years ?

At some point, if the difference is many years, it will affect parts of the relationship if not the relationship itself. This may not be true for every spring/fall relationship but age difference plays a part in every relationship even if only in small ways. Music choices, activities and friends. My wife is three years older than I am and I never pass up the chance to remind her lol

I am Italian, Italians used to marry younger women and, for what I know, this has not changed. In our days many couples are the same age, as they meet in school or at the university. My husband is 5 years older and we have no problems. The father of my husband was 25 years older than his mother, they ended up divorcing.

Yes, in Romania too, marriages predominate where the husband is older! This has been the tradition for hundreds of years, but now it's more fun. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, maybe it doesn't affect anything!

@soymex I know that in the past, women preferred an older man because he needed to have a good job before starting a family. Men preferred younger women because young women can take better care of young kids. My brother and his wife were the same age, my Dad was 3 years older than my Mom.

It is common nowadays to marry a partner who is much younger. Indeed love is blind If we love, even though our partner is much older than our age, then we will still love him.

Yes, at first love is blind, but over time, can it affect the difference in age, the relationship? I don't know, maybe discussions, about "I told you I was older"?

@soymex Yes it is a couple united by true love. Love is blind. Regardless of age.

My man is 10 years older than me , and this does not cause me any inconvenience , on the contrary , at this age he took place as a person , I learned a lot from him , and if you love a person , age does not matter

Of course, where there is love, nothing can happen. But, you know what it's like, one wants to go to the disco and the other to the park!

I don’t know if age matters. If a couple love each other age probably doesn’t matter.

I think so too, but there are some couples who have discussions about the age difference between them!

@soymex I agree. The couple should always discuss the age difference.

Some age differences can work but when there's a big gap I don't know what a couple would find in common,

Maybe it's just love ... When you're young, it doesn't really matter!

@soymex when you're in love you don't think about the difference. My personal opinion is there's no right or wrong relationship and age shouldn't matter.

Wow! I think a man should be older than the woman. My father is 6 years older than my mother.

It's true what you said. It's the current trend marrying with big age differences. No big age differences isn't in my family

There are some cases that it really affects the relationship but it depends on the couple

It seems to me, people are attracted to each other for many reasons and motives and with all ages, and it has always been like this. I think if the people are compatible, age does not make a difference. Just my thoughts.

Correct, but from a certain age, let's say, in 50 years, problems can arise!

Most people that I know are married to people close in age to them. The more years between the couple the more likely to end in divorce. It is a proven fact.

I would not marry someone young enough to be my child. That seems repulsive to me. I see no harm in marrying someone 10 years older. Much more than that, and you have nothing in common.
