What do you think of relationships with age gaps?
Posted 5/11/15
I think age matters. A 10 year old cannot date a 50 year old. That's just wrong, lol. I think 16 is a good age for someone to date whoever they like. But 15 and below is kinda weird. Like why would someone want to date a kid anyways? Idk. Lol.

It depends on how large the gap is.

Like many others my view is once you reach legal maturity age stops mastering, more our less. I've been married 18 years to someone literally one month my junior, but also know a triad who have been together with a 20 or more (I can't recall exactly how much, my friend was in her 20s when she coupled with someone in his 50s and his wife) just as happily. Once you get out of high school, really, it is far more about interests and chemistry than age.

As long as everybody is of consensual legal age and, not coerced, then whatever gets you through the night.

Definitely legality matters. After that age doesn't matter that much. I have been married 21 years to one who is 12 years older than me.

just read about some guy who left his 40 something year old wife for an 83 years old lady. The wife caught him cheating on her when she went to borrow cooking salt from the 83 year old neighbour

and I'm just thinking in my head... "GROSS"...

I seriously don't want to be that old and still hold that kind of desire.

Personally I'd date an 80 year old woman if she's a fun person to be around. Whether you're 20 or 100, a smile is a smile.

Hmm... what's the word for this? Admirable? Yes, admirable!

Personally I think it's safer to date people after they're around 22? Past experience seems to dictate that before then many don't possess a solid grasp on their own identity and their personalities are actually quite volatile and subject to change.

My husband is 11 years older than me, and it matters not one bit. I think it actually helped with my parents somewhat because he is only about 10 years younger than them - since the gap isn't as large, they seem to get along great!
He is also very understanding and lets me do things he doesn't particularly like doing (like amusement parks, haunted hayrides, going to movie theaters, etc). He has never been jealous and is fine with me going out with friends as long as I let him know where I am so he doesn't worry.

Long as it's legal I'm fine with it. But then my husband is 20 years older so I'm quite biased.

I don't judge people who are in an age gap relationship. People can date whoever they want. Although i wouldn't like to date someone a lot older than me.

Since we won't necessarily meet everyone born on our own birthdays there will be age gaps. My parents had a decade gap between them and step father had just over a two decade which he kept a secret. I didn't find out how big that gap was between mother and him until he died. We found out that grandfather was grandmother's toy boy. She met him when she was 29 with 4 children, going through a divorce. He was 19.

I must say it was kind of uncomfortable when a 16 year old got interested in me when I was 27 (I always look younger than my age). He hadn't known that I was past 20. I'd expected guys who I wanted to date to date at least be old enough to vote.

My feelings on age gaps is scaled based on age they both would have to be in range of their own age +/-20%. Anything within that range I think would consider perfectly acceptable. In the end though I don't really care what other people do, but that would be the guidelines for myself. (to be honest I only care about physical and mental maturity, I do care though about the prying eyes of society)

It happens. If it works, then it works.

Love knows no age, but please avoid sleeping with anyone under 18.
