Age can make a difference and it may not. This can not be answered so easily. there are three ages- physical, mental and emotional. this discussion can be carried out only if proper examples are cited. Otherise it is very general.

The truth is that no matter how mature the younger one is, though, they are still at different places in their lives. 1 20-year-old is still in college, still has their whole life ahead of them and isn't yet established in their life. A 40-year-old has been there, is probably in a steady job that they're going to stay in and lives where they're going to stay, has had a lot of life experiences and possibly relationships that the 20-year-old may not even be able to imagine. The two have entirely different concerns about what's going on in their life at the moment. What can they possibly have in common?

Normally age gap relationships are more because of sexual attraction.

I married a man 15 years my senior. We are now divorced and I've been married to a man only three years my junior. Age isn't what went wrong with the first relationship. The gap was in our attitudes toward one another. However, I'm happy to say this time I'm married to someone with a common attitude. Our attitude is to do our best to love and respect one another, and to help us do that we have put God at the head of our relationship.

I am currently in an age gap relationship. The gap is of 12 years. Sometimes it matters and sometimes it doesn't. I don't think we have any MORE problems because of it. I guess it all depends on the relationship.

My husband is 21 yrs older then me and i am 26. i do not notic an age difference when we are to gether my mom is almosts as old as his mom and we were raised with the same mentalenty!! i have always been around adults and had to deal with adult problems and have found that i never fit in with my age group ever on any level!!! but his age group i am comfortable around once they get to know me and see me for me and not my AGE!!! I think its a great forum to start because while age doesnt matter to me and my husband we get allot of looks and find our selves isolated because there is no one to talk to about problems because at his age people have been married and have kids or divored and have a bad outlook and feel it there god give life gaol to point out how bad marrage is and the newlywed stage is a phase blah blah blah I DONT WANT TO HEAR IT!!!!!!! and my age group dont believe in marrage but they believe we should have kids blah blah blah i DONT WANT TO HEAR THIS EITHER!!!!

I think it does make a difference. I was married to a man and I was 7 years older than him. I don't think it worried him but I found it certainly worried me. In the end we divorced yet he was a good man.


Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them
but you always know they are there.

My husband is 8 years younger than I am. We started as just friends and our romance developed pretty quickly. It drove his family crazy -- I was the evil "older" woman. My friends/family thought it was just a fling.

We got married when he was 21 and I was 29. He has always been very no-nonsense, knew what he wanted to do, etc. He's an engineer - I think it comes with the territory. Whereas I had my wild days in college, he was just never interested in any of the "normal" college craziness. We tease each other occasionally, but none of the bumps in our marriage (12 yrs) have been related to age.

There are many ages- physical, emotional and intellectual.
Which age are we talking about?

To Me Age doesnt matter, Love is Love despite Age, color, Religion etc. With that being said, i can speak for myself and say i ahve always dated men slightly older than i. My current is 10yrs older. I am 26 he is 36 and it works, WHY U ASK??? Well, like someone said in another reply, We Women mature faster than men. Infact, at my age, i am probably matched with someone his age (36).

What i find to be rediculous is a man at 60 with a 27 yr old girfriend...WHAT IN THE WORLD??? What do they have to share but sex? what do they have in common? Thats when you start to ask yourself and answer yourslef. Its probably money if he is rich, if not...i just cant explain it.

Age doesnt matter at the end of the day and shouldnt. Once you are legal, if you find love in a man twice your age then HEY, go for it. Just remember, men will remain boys. An older man in most cases just means he is stable and more likely to know what he wants. BUT he is still a boy at heart so there really isnt any difference in a man at 40 and a boy at 20, well besides 20yrs. <img src="/images/graemlins/wall.gif" alt="" />
